Message of Love

As I stare out
into the late, 
evening sky,
starry snowflakes
 gather to meet
  tired eyes.

They huddle together
to make sure I see
the message of love
they've so carefully
drawn for me.

The Triumph of Galatea by Raphael

in a few hours,
Cupid's arrows will
fall like shooting stars
to enamour all those
who aren't enamoured so far!
I, intend to stay indoors,
having been pierced
by his amour arrow before,
and though I'm recuperating,
I still feel quite sore, 
so I'd better not
 take any chances.
