Poem: Sowing Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Sowing love is a poem about a man who patiently waits for a woman to love him. She has been betrayed by love in the past, closing the door to hope. He continues to show her affection, hoping one day her love will bloom.

Sowing Love

Sowing seeds of love

in each corner of her heart,

patiently waiting for the drought to end.


Quenching her thirst with tiny drizzles,

hoping for a soaking rain

to water her roots.


His labor of intense affection,

taps against the window pane of her broken heart

nurturing it to sprout.

Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.
