A Haiku on Love
“Hearts break without sound
Tears falling blinded by snow.
Seeds yearn for spring’s warmth.”
Love never gives up.
Sometimes, we give up on love or believe it isn’t present, or that it doesn’t care to be with us.
Love is always present. Love is always caring for and with us.
We need to care for ourselves to know its power, to experience its majesty, to be free to Love.
Dark gives way to light
Morning breaks, the heart opens
Love fills in the cracks.

Beginning, sun sets
in shadowed light embracing day.
Owl hunts in darkness.
Breathing into light
dawn quietly leaves night’s bed.
Sparrow sings of joy.
Create! day called out
to time passing by unseen.
Magpie adors its nest.
Crimson fire burning hot
expands out to touch the horizon.
Eagle soars on high.
Ending, day seeks
closure in death’s sweet promise.
Raven waits patiently.
Dusks thin veil pulls back
releasing earth from day’s labour.
Dove settles lightly.
Seeking the great One
silence beckons at night’s edge.
Swan floats silently.
