Short Meditation on Love
Love is not a series of ultimatums, tests, or games.
Love is not fragile like rose petals caught by a gust.
Love is not superficial or unkind or selfish.
Love takes you by surprise,
grasps you in an embrace
of fierce loyalty.
Love weathers storms
through patience, understanding,
kindness, thoughtfulness .
When nurtured, love always thrives.
