Some say, "Love. It is a hunger An endless aching need" I say, "Love . . . It is a flower And you its only seed. ----The Rose, by Amanda McBroom
We all yearn for what we have lost. But sometimes, we forget what we have. ― Mitch Albom
. . An Endless Aching Need A void in my heart followed me like an insatiable hunger until it yawned so big, timeless and powerful, it drew me in. -----G. Hill
The Hungry Shapeshifter Love is a hungry shapeshifter. It is aloneness, a baby's cry, an elusive melody, an empty page wanting words, a canvas begging for color, the void needing form, a lens urging focus, the shore calling back the tides, fertile ground waiting for seed, and a temple for the One who dwells within, calling us homeward. -----G. Hill
Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? -----1 Corinthians 3:16
When the night has been too lonely And the road has been too long And you think that love is only For the lucky and the strong . . .
Just remember in the winter Far beneath the bitter snows Lies the seed that with the sun's love In the spring becomes the rose. -----Amanda McBroom

Loved the poem comparing the rose beneath the winter’s snow and bitter cold to love readying to bloom under life’s bitterness and stressed.
Thank you so much. Love takes so many shapes and yet all the same, a call homeward.
