An encouragement of light

It Felt Love

How
Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its
Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light
Against its
Being,

Otherwise,
We all remain
Too
Frightened.

(Hafiz, The Gift)



PS: This entry is a tribute to my husband: Thanks, cutie, for 26 years today!
