A toast to lovers everywhere ~ Happy Valentine's Day~!
Love is a territory we map with little skill.
We imagine it a place at journey’s end,
all the fated roads, even mistook bends
will deliver us always high on a hill,
and we, like conquistadors, appraise our ground.
It is more a place a few stumble upon,
though they will still persist with narratives
of fate, kindred spirits and a madness.
