We Write Poems A Valentine Message

A Valentine Message
Be my Valentine won't you please
Monday first day of the week
February 14th Valentines day
Just a little note to say
I love you
And to think you
For all you do

You're always there when I need you
You never let me down
All is visible to me
And I know your heart
Together we make up
What is "me"

"Home" to me, warm and safe
You tend the fire
You take my hand when it is dark
You guide me if I lose my way

I live in gratitude to myself
I am not alone
I hear your soft voice
My heart belongs to you
You are my own Valentine


Image from the internet. Prompt: Spiral Prompt# 35: Shadow

The Spiral and Its Shadow
Embrace your soul
And cast your shadow
Follow the spiral
Birth begins, new life
The cycle ends with death
No shadow cast
Life's full circle is complete

There are many spirals
Pecked in stone
Across the southwest
In Chaco Canyon there is
A famous spiral
That is hidden

The Sun Dagger
(gone now)
A dagger of light
Would enter the spiral
And cross through the center
On the summer Solstice
The longest day of the year

The spiral is ancient, old
Round and round it goes
No less important today
The idea of the
Spiral and it's shadow
Travel through the underground
Emerging into sunshine
Where all shadows will be found

Van Gosh painted movement
Into his paintings
And if you look you will see
The spiral and it's shadow, too
Created by his brushstrokes
Paint upon canvas

Dip your paint loaded
Brush into water
The spiral and its shadow
Float to the surface
Perhaps it's created by the
Movement of the earth.
Past, future and this moment
Are one in the spiral
And its shadow

I like what you found in Van Gogh, takes an artist to recognize another. Just as your valentine recognizes herself,

Beautiful, Annell, I must find this movie! Sigh. Humans are so wonderful, are they not?
