The day meant for love

This definitely needs some editing, but I definitely need sleep, so here it is raw, unfiltered, unedited, my reflections on love the day before Valentines Day.

It’s the day before
The day meant for love.
So i watch birds fly across the sky
And wonderif there is an even number of them
And if they are all coupled.
I watch a spider and wonder
If he is proud of his web
And wishes he had a partner
To share it with.
I watch adults with children,
Moms, Dads, grandparents, caregivers,
And try to guess if they are family
Or hired.

Saint Valentine
Didn’t have a bow and arrow
And Cupid is a fantasy.
But love is real.
Couples are real.
Unconditional love is real.
So why do we feel like we need
To buy cards
And chocolate
And fancy dinners
And flowers
And whatever else is being pitched this year,
To prove love
To show love.

Do these items symbolize
The feelings of heart and soul?
Or have we become conditioned to need
To give and receive these kinds of things
As a way of showing love?

A day for love,
For celebrating
The love you feel
For someone else,
For yourself.

Happy heart day!
However you choose to celebrate
And express your love.
