South End Stew: Love Flower Blooming

by Deborah “Dee” Williams

Love makes my heart fill with joy.
I breathe it into my soul and there it rests.
When you come close, it will find you and spring full,
like a flower blooming in the light of the soul.
Never doubt your power to nurture love inside yourself
until one comes who will shower you with the gentle
rainwater that causes your love sea to rise up from
within to unite as one. Never doubt that this love is
meant to be and that this love is for you and me.
