It’s Valentine’s day, so how could I not write about love.
Love, including the romantic one, is an emotion which transcends all races, religions, and, sometimes, even reason. Poets, authors, and songwriters attempt to capture the essence of love in their work, but it all boils down to feelings.
For romantic love, there are all those emotions which free butterflies in your stomach or drop rocks into it, which make the sweat glands in your palms overreact or slows down your breathing, which stops your heart beat or speeds it up, which prompts you to babble or become a mute. Yes, love is capable of all these actions and more.
This morning my creative musing came up with a love poem, so here is my feeble attempt.
Laugh, listen, learn with each other.
Observe, obsess, overreact together.
Venture, vie, vanquish for each other.
Enjoy, escape, entangle, enrich, entice together.
Rejoice because love can do all of these or just one of these.
Okay so I’m not a poet and had the hardest time with the Vs. The R is there because it needed a last line. I enjoyed writing this acrostic love poem, which I believe is what counts. Let me know if you hate it or like it.
Today I’m spending it with the love of my life and our children. And, of course, I’ll be writing about young love.
I encourage you not only to spend today with those you love, but to share a small part of your love with those you meet today. Greet everyone with a smile and enjoy the day we celebrate LOVE! You never know where a smile might lead to.
Happy Valentine’s Day from my heart to yours and Love Everyone!
