Where Love Is…

Take me to a place where love is.

Hopes are anchored
truths revealed
ideas encouraged
dreams fulfilled
grace given
wrongs repealed
and promises are kept.

Help me build a space where love is.

Ears are open
minds cleared
change welcomed
energy geared
thoughts illumined
progress neared
and problems are not swept.

Help me show the face of what love is.

Eyes are gentle
hearts opened
fears silenced
spirits boldened
wrongs righted
barriers broken
and kindness seeks new depths.

    1. Thank you so much for reading. The SOL challenge is the place that I find stretches me in this way the most. I am most appreciative for the catalysts, which include the honest and affirming feedback from such a warm community of writers. You make me believe I can do more than I sometimes think – including you, Ms. McCrackin

      Forever grateful…


  1. I love the cadence of this piece. I can almost see a lyrical dance as I read the words. I was drawn to the line “and problems are not swept” because really, isn’t love a place where you can deal with your problems with grace and space to understand?
    Very nicely done.

    1. Thank you so much, DontBotherOrtizMe (and I love the wordplay in this name, by the way 🙂 Cadence is among my favorite things to explore while writing – it seems to tickle the brain in the most beautiful of ways.

      I think problems are swept so often when they shouldn’t be – and I believe that is the antithesis of love. So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for reading…
