100 Words: On Love

Kindness grows in any climate, any time of year. Kindness has the heart of a flower growing in the crack of a rock, glad to be alive wherever it is.

Suspicion and blame take root in acidic soil, and overtake a garden not tended to or weeded regularly. Fear grows in clumps, banding together for a show of strength. 

Fear is a servant of Love. Walk through fear and you’ll find Love, the Source of All.

Love wears a coat of many colors. It’s in sunshine, rain and wind.

Love breathes you, moves you.

Yes. It’s what built your heart.

    Lovely! I like this idea of 100 words. Feels like poetry. Reduces to the essential.

    Hope all goes well with the move. A stressful time but leads to new adventures. Thinking of you.

    Condensing what you want to say in a smaller no of words is more difficult I think than having gazillions of words to say it–its the core. You do it well.

    I enjoyed the power and clarity of this Haiku blog. Woodrow Wilson is quoted as saying, “. . . if I have an hour to speak I’m ready now. If ten minutes, I’ll need a month to prepare.” Words matter, clarity is power.
    Hugs,

    How lovely.
    Quite a challenge I imagine, encouraging the poet/wordsmith within.

    Thanks for these wonderful images.
