All posts for the month February, 2018

after thirteen years of
i picked this for you
made this for you
let’s see that thing
or try this together
and make something new
our valentine’s day looks like all the other days of
sharing snuggles
while playing adventure games
and laughing at inside jokes
over homemade snacks
with hearts obnoxiously full
of a love
that only we could create

in the stale stillness of winter
she stumbles upon an unexpected explosion
of magic and wonder
where these twinkling pearls of energy
string together a brilliant cacophony of wowment
and vibrantly paint the world in golden light
she is in awe
by this raw power
that flows around and through her
breathing in the dazzling discovery of electrifying elation
