Last night we had an ice storm. Sparkles of ice falling in the night.
This morning – no power. It is freezing in the house. We traipse over to Mom’s with wine and cheese [that cheese will go bad we better eat it.]
So here I am, on Valentine’s day, with husband, mom, wine, and cheese. Not too bad a Valentine’s day.
Considering I did not win the poetry contest. [I am assuming I did not win because the winner gets a call from you-know-who tonight and I have not been notified but also no winner has been announced yet.]
So, in celebration of love on Valentine’s day, here was my attempt to write a mushy love poem [this was hard for me I am not a mushy love poem kind of person.] Per contest rules, the poem can only use words from the song “A Thousand Days.”
“The Little Love Poem That Couldn’t”
I promise the skies –
cause you light a thousand nights
and reach my soul, you.
Angels know your eyes,
your heart, your soul – light won’t lie.
And I know your love.
My love – it won’t go.
You’re my sun, moon, stars – my home,
everything. You know.
