Love Shrine

In some ways I must keep my love silent
even though I do not want to

Somewhere we decided we would honor love on a given day...
growing up I always wondered, why not every day?
Why do we need a DAY?
I have always resisted this artificiality
yet while recognizing the uncontainable
truth oozing out of every crack and crevice
that love is the single most important thing....

So perhaps no chocolates or flowers or gems or pearls this year
but I will build a shrine to love
