Cupid's need for archery lessons

Can love's long shot con
us with its loft, drop
a steel tip to spark
flinty hearts, and burn
away sleeping stings?

@hb So good to hear from you again. I hope I can portray more of that duality going forward.

@Smita Thanks! My birthdays haven't always been very special, but this one is off to a good start.

@McD Thanks, as always, for the visit and comment. They always mean a lot.

@JP Thank you!

now that I understood it's your birthday let me wish you something:
may each word your write become light
may each line you draw become a path
may you always travel on the path of light

happy birthday, Francis!
