For Valentine’s Day

Like a poet, I will write verses of love on the walls of our souls and wait for the wind whispers to carry it to a fertile land to be bloomed as fresh flowers. Like a painter I will paint our name on the temple of our heart and together we will bleed the colors of our most intimate feelings.

    I love this, and I think it's a great attribute to us poetry writers aiming at what means the most between all us humans is that the temples of our hearts can rejoice and remain forever in love with all things.

      Thank you Kevin. It is getting the best from life. To really get its meaning.

        Hi Fred. I’ve been to busy and don’t want to fight with time. I get too anxious if I have to do too much. Yes, I like this little writing of me. Glad you like it too.

                Hi Heather. I would be here everyday but somehow life caught me with too much compromise. I’m trying to get less busy. Thanks for reading.

                  Hi girl. Yes, I’m off for a long time. I love to write and paint and design and sew. This is why I’m so busy. Too much interest. Thanks for reading and comment. I appreciate it.
