HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
to everyone out there
just tell me
how in the world…
the representative of
*you know the day of romance*
can get us feeling the love
with images like this?
A chubby toddler with a bow and arrow
have been seared into our heads
to represent the
romantic, loving annual
for as long as I can remember!
An ohhh boy are flower shops
Hallmark having a hayday
I’ve read the most hysterical
postings on facebook and twitter
to announce the coming
Valentines’ Day last week, this week
and last night
Some just too naughty to put here
one that stands out:
“Feb 14, final day to take DOWN those Christmas arrangements”!!!
~ ~ ~
The flower shops will be hopping,
those florists will have bandaids on all their poor dry and scraped hands from cleaning the thorns of the roses, having picked the pedals from the outside “packing pedals”
now the flowers will begin their delivery routes…
Everyone, I mean everyone wants those flowers delivered to where they work; they want the love to be seen by all!
Ah, I smell the love in the air,
Tonight the restaraunt scene will be awash with folks dressed to the nines
and couples will treat each other with that lovin feelin…
Love is in the air,
it warms my heart to visualize it.
I just want it to last….
maybe if we just sent that “toddler with the arrow and bow” out everyday…
if we held on to the feeling and the look of love that might be exchanged through the treatment and looks that will be exchanged or witnessed by others today;
the words that will be spoken,
the memories that will be evoked
If we send each other flowers everyday,
then they wouldn’t cost so much for this one day in time!
Oh but take a look at some of the flower shop websites at their most remarkable flower arrangements;
the colors, the brilliance.
Buy YOURSELF some flowers
once a week,
once a month,
YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Happy Valentine Day
Take best care of YOU,
of your heart…
From ancient times
right here right now;
I’m holding you in the light
of great sights, great smells
Pop the cork on a spectacular day
Walk in Beauty,
