Love comes in many guises and depths. As Emily Dickenson once wrote: That love is all there is, is all we know of love. Valentine’s Day isn’t only about romantic love. Wishing you love wherever you find it. Here are a few snapshots of love to help you on your way.
Little boy runs fast The street is filled with traffic Dog grabs his pant leg girlfriends gossiping handsome heartthrob looks their way a blonde girl blushes library silence their fingers touch over books writing new stories Matchmakers today rely on technology Where is the frisson? Her makeup streaking Hopeful he waits on bent knee Where is her reply? She wants to elope He wants grand ceremony They stand in the church Newborn baby cries a weary mother comforts the world is put right Wrinkled hands count years old age reflects in their eyes love lasts forever
