love is never diminished when given freely,
it is only expanded, compounded, and unfolding
until it encompasses
I and We will give until
our hearts burst,
but bursting forward and outward and everywhere
every sad child
every broken heart
and every tear shed
and burning with desire
to give freely,
like a cloud of electrons floating above a shining metal sphere,
a cloud of love
encircling the earth.
