A Kindness Kind of Love

For all we know, love lingers not far from a corner, every avenue, seen and unseen; everywhere where we aren’t looking, there love is. I’m not so much inspired lately and yet I know simply to push through, defy the negativity that may stump love. For all love begins with kindness. A kindness kind of love, one might say; one can only hope for these days.

demonstrate this kindness, strut
this love because we are dancers
of the world; painters, artists,
photographers… snap a photo
of this compassion, this peaceful
handshake, this warm embrace who
takes me for love: love of the ages,
interrupted and perpetuated, frosted
and sometimes perpetrated; ask me to
love and I’ll show you untainted
rivers, abundant flowers– this heart’s
eager content to show how much of
a barrel inside of me holds
a love of the ages, a love generated,
invigorated by the sight of you!
