Triumphant Day

This day for lovers

all the parts are perfectly scripted

the players stand at the ready,

tonight will be a performance.

A soft almost delicate bracelet

glistening with newness

it’s hard to imagine

love could dull or vanish.

Yet today,

one anticipates

if the words will ever come?

Pulling the petals from flowers

am I loved or not?

Everywhere are bouquets of flowers.

The markets are super busy

a frantic search consumes the shoppers

on this ordinary day.

It’s hard to imagine

not having,

that flooded rush

the excitement of giving and receiving.

The love we seek

is truly out there

we get what we give

make today

the start of your own

Valentines Day.
