Falling Foolish (2016 April PAD - Day 1)




Falling Foolish
 
Falling in love
is a foolish endeavor
(’though lovers – and others –
might tell you it’s clever;
trust me: 
it’s never.)

Falling
is for water –
raindrops and snow.
Tumbling’s for rocks
or a star’s final show;
but never for hearts.
(You & I
ought to know.)

Falling
is something
that’s best left to dreamers –
a calling best suited for sleep.

 Love is an action verb
Don’t fallJUMP in.

(But look
before
you leap.)
