GIRLS EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP
Love Is an Expression
Love smells like the air after the Heavens have released rain. The scent of love is a sweet symphony within the dreams of mankind. The dreams of taste from love. Love is an astonishing sound in an ensemble of musical connection in human souls. If man could touch love there would be a shock of individual touches of love. Individually love is colorful. The color of love is blue and soft. It is the color of rain. That clears the thoughts of humans, love moves through the soul smoothly; it does not dominate the soul.

The Smell of Love
Smell it: it would be a sweet fragrance that tickles the nose. The smell would simply lift you off your feet.
Taste it: love would taste like chocolate, leaving a stain on your tongue. Love has a distinct taste, which you will never forget.
The sound of it: Love would sound like the voice that rings softly in your ears. Love sounds like the words that slip through their lips.
Touch it: Love would feel like a soft, silk blanket wrapped around your arms. Love would feel like the butterflies dancing in your heart.
The Color of it: Love is the color of a painter’s canvas. It starts off blank, but as you paint your left with colors that will last forever.
The movement of it: Love moves like a dancer feet. It moves to the beat of your heart, love moves as you go gracefully flowing.
