This One Goes Out to the Ones I Love

I see them on the pavement and in the sky.  They spring up on fresh green stems and are forged from frozen sea foam.  Some beckon in perfect symmetry among mismatched brethren on a rocky shore.

One is formed fleetingly in the illusion of intertwined, gracefully curved necks as two swans silently float past one another.

An unusual tomato slice poses for me before meeting its fate at lunch.

I peer sideways at a sunset’s golden reflection in frigid marsh water and see a charmingly irregular heart.

This Valentine’s Day, may your hearts be healed and whole, and may you find love in unusual spaces.

  1. How beautiful.
    Sign of love are everywhere, from a stone on the beach to clouds in the sky, even a misshapen piece of breakfast cereal. Sometimes, it comes to you when you’re not looking for it, and when recognised, you never let it go.
    Another lovely post Stephanie.
