The Untouched

Like wild grasslands, free to sway with the changing winds, yet always in unison.

Like the ocean waves, never contained by glass walls. The tides can stretch as far out and in as they please, despite always traveling in sets.

Like the tallest trees, brimming with their potential to touch the sky, to kiss the sun, and to greet the winged ones who rest upon their endlessly growing branches. Yet, they do so and strengthen in forested pairs.

Love is something that frees us, that sees us on our journey around the world in one thousand one hundred and eleven ways.
It inspires us to never stop learning, growing, and reaching for our highest good.

Love kindles deep friendship and bonds that embrace our authenticity. It warms the ember of our passions and ignites our souls with the desire to be intrinsically true…. Not just for “you”

Because love may start with “me”
While nature melds it into “we”.
