love flows in softly,
love begins through kindness.
love says “Good morning.”
love boards a train.
love rides behind you.
love wonders about you.
Love reaches out, “Hi!”
LOve takes you dancing,
LOVe flys you away,
LOVE holds you tight.

Thank you, Darlene, (at https://darlenescorner.wordpress.com) for giving me this challenge. I had fun, and I enjoyed reading your poem as well.
A friend asked my advice for how to write poetry, so here a few thoughts for if you are stuck and have to write a poem, but the ideas aren’t coming:
Just try to just have fun with the words and write down whatever comes to you.
Write about something you like.
It doesn’t have to rhyme.
You can make it fun by having the words make the shape of what you are talking about.
Open a dictionary and choose a word off that page to start your poem.
Use crazy verbs that are full of life, like zap, bounce, and wriggle!
Be yourself and just have fun.
