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
Landscape, Cave, Moon, Twilight, Night, Sky, Stars
  . .  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.

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.

Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?
     -----1 Corinthians 3:16

The Parable of the Sower, —Matthew 13
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 . . .

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. —-Song of Solomon 2:1
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.

    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.


    1. Thank you so much. Love takes so many shapes and yet all the same, a call homeward.
