Hello and Welcome to the April Edition of the Blender of Love!

For almost two decades now the Blender has been the web's original open forum for romantic poetry, and our small band of stalwart readers and writers engage in a process of reminding our selves what it means to love, and the kind of pain we can feel when we don't... or sometimes, when we do. A selection of some of the most striking of last month's works are presented here.

You are welcome to join in with your own voice-
As always, love, read, and enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper

don't stop
Five by Star of David, often prolific, always good.
Bring Back the Past
My 12 Steps
Three by musicalduck -- also prolific. I especially enjoyed the final one's take on the classic 12 steps-- "Hi Musicalduck!"

One to one.
The Past - Ravenheart
Interesting take on the old line about rivers.

On the old geometry.
