Post-valentine note



I love spilling the page     I love ripping pages
I love falling over & over     I love pause
I love feverish words, climbing like ants, blind as bats

I love silver teaspoons    I love spooning at night
I love long afternoon walks     I love getting lost
I love red, reddish & magenta like sinful velvet cakes 

I love heat & pancakes for breakfast    I love fast & slow
I love opening small boxes    I love putting ribbons in boxes
I love pattern of leaves, rings in trees, streaks of sunlight  

I love the smell of fresh coffee    I love dancing to Latin beat
I love sizzling steaks      I love sea salt baths
I love hiss-hiss-hiss of teapot    I love tip-tap-tip-tap of rain

I love melting snow      I love melting together    
I love skin      I love scents     I love colors   
I love waking up to another day with you--

  30. "I love feverish words, climbing like ants, blind as bats"

    Like this poem, its repetition and its caesura making me feverish, though not sick, not sick at all. Un-Valentine's day poems are the best! Happy, Happy.

  31. Yes! Isn't it fabulous to be in love with incarnation? Sweet sights, sounds, tastes, aromas, tactile sensations! Every time I have been at death's door - the tunnel of light -- I have raged to return and continue on with wondrous life. Have I done enough with it? Maybe not. But I do love being here and I appreciate how you have communicated that same sense of delight in all the details of living. But isn't it a little crowded in here, waking up to the entire d'Verse gang?!? LOL http://youtu.be/dWwvS0-Brg8
