Love in Vancouver
Love is a live animal
Trapped in the cage of the heart
Locked into inactivity by fear
Of rejection by the sunshine
Of another human’s attention —
But the lock of love is let loose
By the key of a warm smile —
The nod of mutual understanding —
The touch of a friendly hand —
A place of welcome beside the campfire
Of the community hearth.
