M is for Magpie Tales and Marriage

Spring, 1935 by Kuzma Petrov-Vodin 

Looking out 
We took the leap of deep friendship
Love rewards
Twenty-three years ago today my sweetie pie
and I got married. It's been wonderful and
rewarding being married to my very best friend.
I could not ask for a better life partner

Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales
I've been participating on her Magpie Tales since 
May 1st 2010. It's been so much fun learning how
to write poetry from all my fellow bloggers.
Not to mention all the nice people from all over
the world that I have "met".
Cheers everyone! Have a lovely week!
Here's the link to this weeks Magpie Tales:
