Cupid's Day and Hallmark laughs!

to everyone out there
But someone
just tell me
how in the world...
the representative of
Valentine Day
*you know the day of romance*
can get us feeling the love
with images like this?
A chubby toddler with a bow and arrow
have been seared into our heads
to represent the
romantic, loving annual
February 14
for as long as I can remember!
An ohhh boy are flower shops
and Hallmark having a heyday
ever since! It's also "heart day", for those soul connections, friendships, those relationships that go beyond all boundaries of understanding and unconditional love.

I've read the most hysterical
postings on Facebook and twitter
to announce the coming
Valentines' Day last week, this week
and last night
Some just too naughty to put here
and one that stands out:
"Feb 14, final day to take DOWN those Christmas arrangements"!!!
~ ~ ~
The flower shops will be hopping,
those florists will have band aids on all their poor dry and scraped hands from cleaning the thorns of the roses, having picked the pedals from the outside "packing pedals"
now the flowers will begin their delivery routes...
Everyone, I mean everyone wants those flowers delivered to where they work; they want the love to be seen by all!
Ah, I smell the love in the air,
don't YOU?
Tonight the restaurant scene will be awash with folks dressed to the nines and couples will treat each other with that lovin' feelin'...
Love is in the air,
it warms my heart to visualize it.

I just want it to last....
maybe if we just sent that "toddler with the arrow and bow" out everyday...
if we held on to the feeling and the look of love that might be exchanged through the treatment and looks that will be exchanged or witnessed by others today;
the words that will be spoken,
the memories that will be evoked
If we send each other flowers everyday,
then they wouldn't cost so much for this one day in time! If we love ourselves, it is easier to love others!
Oh but take a look at some of the flower shop websites at their most remarkable flower arrangements;
the colors, the brilliance and the creativity.
Buy YOURSELF some flowers
once a week,
once a month,
Happy Valentine Day
dear hearts

Take best care of YOU,
of your heart...

Delivered "blogstyle"
From ancient times to
right here right now;
I'm holding you in the light
of great sights, great smells
huge hugs.
Pop the cork on a spectacular day
of LOVE! Love of yourself, Love of your world, Love between family, friends, lovers; those who know deep in their heart that LOVE WINS... not just today, but ALWAYS!

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.

I found this and still find it profound,
so here it is:
and my final thought on this
Valentine day 2014

"If I could be anything in the world I would want to be a teardrop because I would be born in your eyes, live on your cheeks, and die on your lips." Author Unknown
