Things That Bloom

Love grows
like a flower.
All a flower needs
is earth and water,
fire and air.

If you have fire in your heart,
if you know yourself a child of earth
akin to all her children,
if you have water flowing in,
flowing through, flowing out of you,
and if the air you breathe circulates within,
then you must know
that you have all you need
to become
love.

Plant seeds
everywhere you go.
Tend them well
with earth and water,
fire and air —
with all that you are —
and love will grow
like a flower.
