are the sentence without a period
The movement in the puddle after the rains
The scent that lingers when the scent is gone
The oxygen for the oxygen
The letters that spell out the word love
The one thing I’ll never leave behind

    Everything that doesn’t make sense, but somehow goes together. Just as scarily clever as ever. LOVE, backwards… it’s hard or impossible to completely leave it behind.

    • Thank you. You always have an interesting perspective. I enjoy reading your comments here. And yes. It’s impossible to leave love behind. It always seems to stay with us, especially when it’s the right one.
