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.


  1. Oh Poppy, I hope you rest well this evening and your heart heals, too. Hugs to you on Valentine's Day.

  2. I wish you a quiet and peaceful weekend. I hope the healing of that wounded place is as quick as it is gentle. Sending hugs and good wishes your way.

  3. Πολλές ευχές, να αγαπάς και
    να αγαπιέσαι πάντα !

  4. Dear Poppy, I send you hugs and love, along with the best wishes for your heart to heal.

  5. My dear Poppy, what a darling saying - love the snow flakes..

    Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day.

  6. Poppy, it will take time but I wish you a new future with lots of happiness and love.

  7. Love this poetry and the sweet heart in the sky. Sending Valentine's wishes your way.

  8. Time will always heal everything, but the scars may remain. Keep smiling always, and warm greetings!

  9. What a touching sentiment on this day that, for so many, is just painful. Have a nice day, Poppy.

  10. Such lovely prose, Poppy. I am sending you love and wishes for comfort as your heart heals, my friend. I hope that being near family has been a comfort. Thinking of you...

  11. One day, Poppy, you will be ready to take that chance again, but for now, be happy just to be who you are. Sending you love today x

  14. And Valentine - as well as every day - hugs from the Pacific Northwest (and sometimes Greece ;-).) That heart of yours, so full of love of life, will mend itself over time and I suspect it will be even stronger and ready for those arrows . . .

  15. Lovely lyrics and pictures, like always, Poppy! Sensitive and touching, too! Best regards and Happy Valentine's Day!

  16. Happy Valentine's Day Poppy I hope you shared it with friends and family you love. Very beautiful poignant post.

  31. Dear Poppy, sending hugs your way, and hoping that you feel a little less "sore" each and every day.

  32. Oh, dear Poppy, I feel that I've missed so much of what you have blogged about in the last few months. I'm so sorry that you have had heartache, but I don't know what it is. Whatever has caused this pain, I pray that your heart will soon begin to mend.

    I also realize that I had no idea you had moved back to Canada. I'm so grateful that you have many much more attentive friends than me. I wish you all the best in your return to homeland Canada.

    Please, please forgive me for my lapse in communicating. I will try to do better. As always, your photography is beyond wonderful. You have an amazing "photographer's eye" for capturing the true beauty of any and everything.

    Warm hugs,

  33. Hi there Poppy! Just seeing what you have been up to! Looking like some changes have taken place on your life based on the content of this post and the comments. Sending a hug your way from across the world...

  34. My dear Poppy, you have been on my heart for quite a while now so I thought I would stop in for a visit. I somehow missed this post when it came out in February... How are you, sweet friend? From the words of this post it appears you suffered pain and my heart truly aches for you. I hope and pray you are healing, dear one. May your beautiful self continue to shine forth!

    Please know that you are thought of often. Love and hugs to you!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate hearing from all of you! Have a great day!
