A tanka for St. Valentine’s Day


A Snapseed look at this year's bouquet.

I wrote this two years ago today, as the fella and I were just starting to date.

On the door step they
sat, wrapped in cellophane, for
me and only me.
I picked them up, gingerly, smiling incandescently.

(And I haven’t stopped since).
