Valentines


Be alert for valentine’s today,

everywhere dispersed.

No subterfuge or camouflage obscures them,

readily displayed for the attentive heart to receive.

Found in puppy persistence and

kitty kisses,

in sunlit flowers and

sky, vivid blue.

Felt in tender caresses and

hearty handshakes,

smiling gazes, and

gentle words.


Seen in dishes washed and

clothes folded,

faucets mended and

gardens tilled.

And in the silence

intentionally cherished,

each note read says,

“I love you.”
