Love

Love
in spite of fear
Love
in spite of those who do not
Love
to heal ancient wounds
Like tree limbs bow to the wind
groaning into the storm
leaves pulled
like hair
washed in heaven’s waters
clean
in spite
of that which is not in our control
Love
through darkness’s long fingered grasp
winding tendrils around tender necks
threatening to break
bow like the limbs
bend like the dance of trees and wind
break
and fall
nestled gently among the fallen leaves
drop seeds into moistened ground
and grow
in spite of the tear
Love
through tears
and see the world through milky glass
light distorted through watery film
give into the bleak and
Love
despite the hollow
naked
alone
as are we all
alike in our fight to
Love despite
