Love Is Found

Nothing in life is more beautiful than nature, and it should be the object of constant observation.

Constantine Stanislavski
The stars shine in the sky at night and glow worms answer them.
The rose whispers to the beam of sunlight.
The patter of rain on the window is echoed in the baby's laughter.
Brave hearts march with the waves of high tide on the beach.
An artist's brush pushes the clouds gently through the sky.
And love is found.

Hurricanes scream of uncontrolled passions.
Tornados crash cruel rage upon the earth.
Wild fires spread hatred through the land.
Nests are made and caves dug for homeless ones.
Galaxies converge and lives are repaired.
And love is found.

Bird song fiddles on the player's strings.
The cathedral mirrors the snow flake on it's steeple.
The photographer records the cliff carved out by time.
There is a flash of light in the northern sky.
Along the city sidewalk two strangers meet.
And love is found.

Curious goats tread the sides of tired mountains.
Tireless worms weave the soil of future crops.
The sailor lights his pipe in the blazing sunset.
The morning rooster awakens the gods.
The baby boy reaches up to touch his father's beard.
And love is found.

The moon watches the world with owl's eyes.
Gentle waterfalls cause the butterflies to dance.
A poet hears his phrases in the wind.
A distant sun stares back at the astronomer
A girl sees her kitten meet itself in a mirror.
And love is found.

Somewhere in the universe a child is born.
And love is found.

At night I pried the bridge out of my jaw. It was painful but not as bad as when I needed to pull two of my own teeth years ago. I call it, Do-it-yourself-dentistry. Fortunately there was no exposed nerve underneath so the jaw is quiet now, no pain. Next step will be another denture. In the meantime I'm just as glad to not have all that hardware in my mouth.
Never give up.
Spring is coming to a close, folks. Where are you?

(This is not a contest)

Come on. 11 diverse and interesting answers so far. Where's yours?

NASA has planned to send a two man mission on an 18 month trip to the planet Mars. It would take 6 months for the astronauts to get there and after 6 months of exploration another 6 months to return.

Should they do it and why, and if not, why not?


I eagerly await your answer.
