Eric Alder's Monday Photo Prompt 7/30/2012

photo by Eric Alder

We've climbed the stairs of love
Those heights weren't frightening 
Instead they were enlightening
Years of ascending 
Leading us to blending
We have become one-
Connected by sinuous invisible cables
Of passion and compassion

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
