right on her heart
the delicate pattern
love traced with
indelible ink
a daily reminder
of what’s to be done
it can’t be ignored

whatever curves
life delivers
love at each turn
is the cure—like
vaccine for a virus
or serum for bites
love is the elixir

it readies the soil
for the potential
of change—it may
not feel gentle
can even be harsh
yet love is the cure
for what ails us
