Love – L – A to Z Challenge

You are loved!

Someone or something within this universe loves you.
There is someone looking up to you.
There is someone willing to help you. Just ask.

You are loved!

If you don’t show up for work, without a warning, your colleagues might wonder or even worry, where you are.
If you go quiet on your blog, your Instagram, there will be people asking themselves where you are. Maybe they will send out a message to see if you are ok.
If you are selling the big issue and are no longer coming, the passerbys will hope in their hearts that you are ok, that you found a good path to walk, that you won’t be selling the big issue again, that you are living a better life.
If you forget that you have a lesson or when you are not showing up to an event without warning. Someone will worry.

When Notre-Dame burnt on Monday, there was a wave of love.

When the Bataclan attack happened in November 2015, the love that circulated was impressive. I received many kind words on my blog. I send messages to check if everyone I knew was fine.

When my mother passed away, a person loving me from before I was born, loving me from the moment of my conception, a strong source of love for me was ripped from my life. Many people loved her and love her. The love I received from friends and strangers after her death was overwhelming.

You are loved!

You are loved! This message is always spread by Ra, who blogs on Rarasaur. It is a message that we should spread more.

You are loved!

Love is vast. Love is magic. Love might be hard to define, but it exists, in various shapes and intensities.

A child's love for their parents.
A child's love for their sisters and brothers.
Their cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, great-grandparents, their family.
The love for a dear friend.
The love for a lover.
The love for a stranger.
A parent's love for their children.
The love for fellow humans.
The cat loves its owner, just think of the snuggles and the purrs.
The dog manifests its love when you come home. Those muddy paws on your trousers and the lick on your face? Love
Mother earth loves you, look outside, she's doing her best to give you beautiful seasons.

Who do you love?

Flowers – F – A to Z Challenge 2019

Every day he gave me a flower. 
Sometimes it was a bought arrangement.
Sometimes it was a wild flower.
Sometimes it was a picked flower.
Sometimes he gave me a dried poppy .
Neatly tukked into the pages of his favourite book.
Sometimes it was free.
Sometimes it was store-bought.
At times it was cheekishly taken from a public garden.
Or from behind the vile neighbours fence.
Sometimes it was drawn on paper.
Sometimes they were bound into a crown. .
Everyday he gave me a flower. 
He gave them with love.
He gave them with passion. 
Sometimes it was a dandilion. 
Sometimes it was origami. 
Sometimes it was a poem,
Or a book about a flower. 
He gave me flower earrings. 
A flower neclace. 
He served me flowers  floating in my tea.
He gave me flowers in the form of a bread. 
Sometimes he cooked with edible flowers. 
He gave me flowers every day. 
He spread out flowers on our bed. 

And now, it is I who is bringing him flowers. 
Every day. 
I come to his grave 
And bring a flower, or two .
Sometimes more. 

And one day soon, I will be here too. 
His last flowers grow here now.
