Still My Valentine


My Valentine is miles from here

and February’s atmosphere

has cloaked the stars.  A snowy shroud

engulfs my heart inside a cloud.


But through the tundra’s ice and snow

I feel his warming afterglow,

a breath across the vast divide

expelled just as he comes inside


my wanton valley, wet and warm –

his shelter from the raging storm.

With Cupid’s arrow plunging deep,

he wakes me from my winter’s sleep.


Our bounding pulses beat as one.

He melts me like a summer sun.

My flower drenched; my petals splayed,

we float atop the love we’ve made.


Eternal Spring has frozen time

forever with my Valentine.
