My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Celebrating LOVE!


I have always thought that February 14th should be a stat. holiday. In Canada, in most provinces, there are no holidays between Christmas and Easter. A very long haul when the weather is cold and the days are short. Is love not worthy of a day to celebrate and focus on?

I would like to send out my very best wishes to all my readers for a love-filled week and many, many hugs. We need to dwell on the positive vibes of goodness, understanding and true friendship more often instead of all the doom and gloom. Perhaps a bit more romance?  I know I do anyways.

Group hug anyone?   😉


PS: What could be more romantic than a treasured love poem?

Enjoy the E.B.Browning classic that has withstood the test of time: How Do I Love Thee. Words and emotions to savor, again and again. Always brings tears to my eyes.
