The Life Force

(haibun)

 

 

They were looking at me and smiling, their lovely heads beaming with happiness. I had brought them a new friend this morning to love and care for; after all they had been unwanted, undernourished and un-loved too so they knew what it felt like.

Once introduced and settled in I fed them and brought a welcome drink. Such a happy family in my garden, like an orphanage for plants; they are all very much wanted brothers and sisters even if they were discarded as unfit for use.

 

The eye of kindness

can resurrect all lost souls

love is a life force.

So much power building up with every line from that quiet virtue of kindness to the resplendence of resurrection and culminating in the life force that is Love! Thanks for sharing Stella, much enjoyed. /Freds.
