VALENTINES VERDICT

they fall into my lap, unresistant. chocolate, the size of a silver dollar. sensation of mint betwixt my fingers. I bite into each one, its cool breath second to none. Godiva ceased production of these tongue trinkets. love pales with petals and Russell Stover… my husband and I hold hands, press our temples together and sigh with the sprightly rush of memory. Mrs. Field’s fresh Cookies a close second especially tasty at Fisherman’s Wharf. still I gladly accept tulips in a väse, its life-giving water, and caramel dreams. my heartthrob beams awaiting the verdict — it’s Valentine’s Day. he’s pretty sure I am his. holding daisy by the stem — she loves me, she loves me not just to be sure, he’s counted each petal beforehand. eleven flowers on the floor — for pity sake. 1/31/2021

I expected a romantic love poem. I was thrilled to receive sweet chocolate surprises along the way.

Gosh Kim, you really have a case here, you have been the judge and jury and how right the verdict is - for pity sake - having said that, my husband always surprises me on Valentines day, he's just a honeybunch. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Mine too! We met on Valentine’s Day! Every...every event he buys me a Precious Moment figurine. I am quite spoiled and loved. This poem is meant to be funny ;)

Is there one petal left? I hope it ends on she loves me. I hope this is the best Valentine's Day up to this point in your life and may each one that follows be awesome. Sara

Of course it does. You can count on that!

Love the players in your "court"room drama here from the chocolate down to the lowly väse. Enjoyable read of the interplay of brand names too. What worthy judge would sustain the complaint of a missing 12th petal on the daisy? My, what a delightful piece for the coming holiday.

He's just making sure... After all he IS a man, you know. Just think: If he gave you a bunch of 9 tulips, you'd have 18 lips. ~ HVD, Kim
