LOVE FOR GREAT AND SMALL

Many eons ago, in minds far superior to ours from a past Man never knew the earth became habitable but this was before the savage became Homo-sapiens visitors came from unknown worlds scouting earth for expansion They carefully laid seeds of their DNA and plant life later returned several millennia later to sow their crops their early labors expressed care in the way they planted their crop when they returned the earth flourished in freshness Mourn if you must for our present predicament cry about what we are today but we were borne out of Love leave no unsavory emotion untouched our emotions have been earned we must savor each emotion before we settle in our grave Stay brave, she said, “Don’t become dead meat. enjoy your life; it’s the only one you’ll get. love like you never loved before care for your fellow humans like never before" Pundits and wise men have said it since Man could talk there are no tomorrows in death death is temporary, souls are eternal and knowledge of having lived is unknowable But I hope you cared enough for someone at least once to have discovered the reason why love is so revered if you did not, you have lived a lonely, wasted life you have misused your life’s purpose and God's great gift of life Nothing feels better to a person’s skin in winter when the icy winds blow and snow scurries from nook to cranny than the heat from both of your bodies cuddled and naked it is then you realize the folly of your reluctance to commit Love is in abundance in this world And there is someone for everyone Just don’t be so picky Real love is love experienced and has no equal Love for all creatures great and small is needed, nay, demanded.

“Don’t become dead meat”…them’s words to live by! Between the ancient Native stories of star people and if I remember correctly, the Sumerians listing the planets in our solar system from the farthest out to the closest to the sun, you have something here! Enjoyed this very much. ~Maureen

The write-ups is very emphatic and telling us about the vanity of life.
