Love will seep in
Through the cracks
In your wall, slowly
Moisturize the lichenified
Skin of your heart, wet the
Parched soil yearning for rain.
The scent of moist earth will
Tickle your nostrils with the promise
Of new beginnings and hope will
Sprout in your soul. You will
Unfurl to the golden rays of
The early morning sun;
Its warmth will fill you with quanta of
Energy, send your cells into a
Frenzy. You will rejoice in its intensity
As it dispels the cold air of doubt
Your leaves will sway to the music
Of the wind and the light kisses of bees
You will purr as your nectar is sucked
And your pollen dispersed abroad.
Summer will meet you in full bloom.
Love will find you in the sweet smell
In the air; in the blossom of sturdy ferns
In the newness of rebirth. In the laughter
Of the ocean, the tanned glow of exposed
Skin; in the union of fingers and stolen kisses
Under the canopy of oak trees. Love will find you
In carvings on tree barks; in the tears of fallen
Leaves in autumn and chapped lips in winter.
Love will double back full circle
Meet you here, beside the ocean
Wishing upon the stars.
