Poetry and a Friend’s New Blog

Today I decided to share a poem because I want to post either a poem, flash fiction story or short story, written by me, here each Friday. However, a good friend of mine just started a new blog that is just so cute, I have to share. So, after you read my poem, I encourage you to visit my friend’s new blog by clicking the title in this post. She’s a gnome who’s lost her home and is in search of a new one. Find out what happened and what will happen next.

What is Love
by Kelly F. Barr

Love is acceptance.
Love is everything found
in First Corinthians thirteen —
patient, kind, always protects,
always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres.

Love is sacrificial;
putting others ahead of ourselves,
serving and helping others.
As the song says, “What the world
needs now is love.
It’s the only thing
that there’s just too little of.”

Let’s stop spreading hate
and spewing unkind words.
Let’s stop judging others
without giving them a chance
and making self-centered demands.
Let’s lend each other a helping hand
and together take a stand
to spread love throughout our lands.


Now, go visit Raewyn’s blog Gnome Gnotes and let her know what you think. Encourage her to keep writing.
