A Love Song


Another one of those words asked to hold far too much. Like hope and home. We love our shoes, our spouses, books, and Thai food. None of it even close to the same emotion. All of it love.

This is my love song for today.
holding hands
couples dancing
wedding dresses
construction paper hearts
glitter clinging to tiny hands
presents for no reason, but love
the truth that love always multiplies, never divides
a new journal, waiting for my words
dangling, sparkling earrings
a smile from a stranger
packed suitcases
moving water

Happy Valentine's Day, dear friends. May you be filled with love today. May you celebrate love in any form it takes. Every way you feel it. Love is in the air.

Thank you, Susan, for the inspiration. And the song. The first photo is by
Katia Chausheva, the second by Eliza Beth.

My friend,

Isnt it funny how just one line, one image, can stir something within us so deeply that it brings a tear to the eye...

For me today it was this

"Glitter clinging to tiny hands"

In the end
arent All of us,
just little ones

chasing stardust,

Sending you the sweet Melodies of today and the harmonies of tommorrow,

Hi Relyn,

You are so talented forming the word shape. I wonder how long it takes?! Lots of thoughts to keep us thinking!
