through the sagebrush,
love is there.
by the cherry blossoms,
love is there, too.
in the way you smile,
there is the love.
in how sun gives way to moon,
love is always there.
the moon, too, cedes to sun,
what is more loving than this?
as I allow for you,
and you allow for me,
love grows bigger still.
i must find it, this love
that is boundless and free,
that cannot only be talked about,
or desired until our blood grow cold.
to find love in one outgrowth of moss,
in one sparkling river downstream,
in a single act of courage and kindness,
this is what we have always been seeking.
this is what we take and build upon,
and this is our world of tomorrow. – TS
