TO MY VALENTINE

 

 

A moment as beautiful as a young Rose

or a yawning Sunflower

that cannot quiet its petals from drawing butterflies

awoke a funny sunlight to the delight of our eyes

 

a time after time of chiming winds

with tickling sensations of love

was like a brewed kiss

from an honest answer

 

a startled picturesque

as sight of morning Zebras

birthed a paradise of praise like an exciting salmagundi

in a magical recipe of thoughtfulness

 

a distant stare of an ageing couple

as smell of fresh milk and chocolates

dumped my thundering peals

into a dawn of newness

 

a February of cupids it was

a memory of smiley rivulets we sat

a sight of clopping horses and disciples of stars

is my wish for you and I, against the world.
