When I imagine love

I see a fire

In a dense thicket

Glowing and dancing drawing

Those near and far

To come and warm

Attracting all creatures closer

Closer shyly closer until

Each one finally understands

The why they’re here

At first it’s curiosity

And then it’s heat

And finally it’s comfort

Knowing that we’re all

The same and indeed

Seeking the same simple

Thing in the thicket
