The What of Love

Love sings the earth so big, swells seas deep & strong. It goldens the sun a little younger every day. Brightens eyes, makes them role models for night’s newborn stars. Love puts the tangy strawberry sweet in the babblebang of babydrum beat. It’s the howl searching for its dog, the kiss seeking its lips, the bird yearning to whisper the gift of flight in our ears. Love builds scarecrows to ward off slummingbirds, grumblebees, and cemetery songs. And while death’s guess looms ever present in the hands of time, love boldly answers the question of what the world needs now.
