Happy Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air

Cupid’s bow is drawn

Don’t move

Let his spirit wrap around your hands.

His arrow’s dipped in publishing Pixie dusk

and its aimed right at you.

HEARTS

by Eileen Spinelli

Blest be hearts of paper–pink and red.
Stone hearts lifted from the river bed.
Sticker hearts on hand-made envelopes.
Heart-shaped candy, pillows, cards and soaps.

Blest be hearts that light our lonely eyes.
Tender hearts of little ones and wise.

Blest be broken hearts. And wild. And bright.
Worried hearts that shape the darkening night.
Hearts of gold. And weary hearts of clay.
Hearts so brave they take your breath away.

A HEARTFUL OF QUOTES ABOUT HUGS

by Eileen Spinelli

A Hug is a great gift.

One size fits all and it’s easy to exchange.

Tea–a hug in a cup.

Sometimes we push people away

when all we really want is for someone to hug us and tell us

“It’s going to be okay.”

You can never have too many books or too many hugs.

Hugging is a silent way of saying you matter to me.

Hugs–not ughs!

Sometimes a hug is all we need to feel better.

You can’t wrap love in a box but you can wrap a friend in a hug.

Hugs are like a warm blanket on a frosty morning.

If hugs were snowflakes we’d send you a blizzard.

ANYWHERE

Love can find us
anywhere:
on a bus or bench
or chair,
in the sunlight,
starlight,
dark,
walking through
a city park,
climbing up
a snowy hill,
lonely,
fretful,
tired…
still–
like a haunting song
or poem
love will bring
each heart
back home.
