Love Persists

Love Persists

Smoke from a fire east of here
fades the random rows of trees
settling slowly between them

Empires dying as they burn
controlling and exploiting
setting fire to warming Earth

Still we tend this garden with its
shiny green to bright red tomatoes
and onions in one long row

This caring for each other is love
guiding us to become as spirit intends
for life’s well being

Love hopes
