BEYOND VALENTINES

Love’s mirage of simplicity:
                   More than just showing up
                                              More than just taking
                                                    More than just being taken
                                                           Taken again and again
                                                                  Taken where?
                                                          . . . Ask me . . . Ask you . . .
 
                                   Valentines easily written
                             Valentine’s paper heart easily torn.
 
                             . . . Love’s own crucible of truth . . .
                Hearts’ truths . . . together learned . . . no easy lessons.
                                   Will you teach me your love?
                                      May I teach you my love?
                                    . . . For myself I can say . . .
                                           Know a few basics:
                                         How to open my heart.
                                          How to give and take.
                                          How to pay attention.
                                               How to listen.
                                        Home work willingly done.
 
                                  Will you say: Student of love mine?
