When your book remains next to your parent's chair and you open it. When your book remains next to your parent's chair and you open it, finding a dog ear.
Singular.
You open it and the poem you find dog-eared is "the blooming flower". God is slick 'wit it! πŸ˜‚

A #morningmeditation on #love: "We love because it's the only true adventure." "A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you're in and take advantage of it." "Now, everything I do, I do because I want to. And I believe the best is yet to come." "A lot of people refuse to do things because they don't want to go naked, don't want to go without guarantee. But that's what's got to happen. You go naked until you die." #nikkigiovanni #heart #live #relationship #hope #growth #depth #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram

A #morningmeditation on #love: "...r/evolution means treating your mate as a friend and an equal. r/evolution is sexy.

r/evolution means respecting and learning from your children. r/evolution is beautiful.

r/evolution means protecting the people. the plants. the animals. the air. the water. r/evolution means saving this planet.

r/evolution is love." β€’β€’β€’ "I believe in living.
I believe in birth.
I believe in the sweat of love
and in the fire of truth.

And i believe that a lost ship,
steered by tired, seasick sailors,
can still be guided home
to port." #assatashakur #heart #live #relationship #hope #growth #depth

A #morningmeditation on #love: "Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within." "Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up." "Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours." #jamesbaldwin #heart #live #relationship #hope #growth #depth #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram
