Thursday 11th February was my Birthday. 

Saying Goodbye to February today: of sometimes 28, sometimes 29 days, but always my birthday appears, so too Valentines Day and there is Carnival

The Lord is my strength, my shield, 

my heart puts its trust in Him;

Psalm 28:7

What's there to smile about today? Thank God for the grace of poetry

A CAT NAMED CHARCOAL
a wintery  night
the depth of shivers before -
a warm counterpane

black lace -
enough holes for heartbreak
to seep through

 truth be told
better a pet;  a black cat
 which stays by her side.

WHO DOESN'T LUV APPLES

 



Love can be an uncrushed flower 


love can be
an uncrushed flower
ixora at night

love can be
passion unrestrained 
bee sips ixora

an uncrushed flower
held between fingers of
a smitten lover

ixora at night
a yellow moon watches
shadows in the street

MORE LOVE - A DOUBLE TROIKU

sunrise
brush strokes of orange
slight in hue

chirping already
an azure melody
those morning birds

anointing the day
Valentines Day with
more love vibrations


❧✿❧

sunrise
the moon lingers
loving blue skies

brush strokes 
of orange
to add to the mayhem

slight in hue
the blush of a 
a lover's kiss in public

❧✿❧

chirping already
those time clocks
those kiskadees

an azure melody
even the soundest dreamer
awakens

those morning birds
ah
those morning birds

❧✿❧

anointing the day
in a messiahood 
of giving

Valentines Day with
its chocolates and roses
and chocolate roses

more love vibrations
dear Earth
we need more much more
