Love Makes A Child

Yeast coaxes flour to rise, makes it buoyant and swell. Love makes a child proud like bread.

The sun beckons a plant to stand tall, makes it stretch and reach. Love makes a child bloom like a flower.

The Earth squeezes itself, pushes its flat places into high hills. Love makes a child confident like a mountain.

Parents love a child, coax confidence and pride, encourage a child to stretch and reach, beckon a child to bloom and stand tall. Love makes a child believe in herself.
