Two Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day!

the hour of content
the dense silence of presence
everyone is home

 * * *

the whimsical willows

the words on the wall

the world that is waiting

the waters that fall
the wishes we whisper

the bottomless well

the wee hours get crisper

the winter waves swell

the ‘why?’, the uncertain

the cruel would-have-been

the wooing, the curtain

the vows in between

the one thing we own

the now with no end

the wonder we’ve known

the storms that we fend

the years that we weather

the wordless ‘love you’

the warmth of together

the oneness of two

written for Phoenix Rising Poetry Guild:


Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (a.k.a. "Happy") 


  1. You are master of perfect last lines in poetry! Love them both and wish you a Happy Day with those you love.

  2. Happy indeed! The haiku is priceless. I used to enjoy my full house.
    Now my chicks have flown. And still it is filled enough when the two of us are within.
    And special when everyone visits and gathers round the table for special celebrations. :)
