A Valentine from the Valiant (Heaven)

by A. Paige White

If you desire
I will rise to meet you
upon this drifting white
Sown as snow

How should you appear?
Not as a politician policing
nor yet any idea
born into smallness
by the mind of men

Rather the blitz of a blizzard
upon my weary way
breathe to me the snow songs
my King

Both Great Shepherd and humble Lamb
Come Shepherd me my Valentine
upon the winds of winter
where Who Dat wins
and priests put their ears
to the whisper of the winds

For flurries of grace
upon the Valentines red of His face


Author's Note:
I shook my head
Rubbed my eyes
Blinking quite a while
Seeing the Kingdom
With the eyes of a child

Happy St. Valentines Day!

Who Dat Snowman? On Hell Froze Over Blvd

My belated (and surprisingly busy!)
"Heaven" entry for the Pathetic Valentine's Contest.
Missed the deadline and it explicitly fails to adhere to the rules and guidelines.

In snow weary areas an encouraging word! God is not only in Heaven but looking down with love and acting with mercy!

A true heart lives and loves throughout the lines and images of these expressions and has successfully connected and lit me up too! :) Loved this--thanks for sharing, Paige. ~HUGS

What a great tribute to THE Valentine. I loved the bow to the Saints, who vindicated the beloved State of my birth. Cool photo. Thanks, Paige.

I find this poem to be at once lovely and inspiring to look at. It has an intriguing shape and quality and the form of which is delving into the mysteries of which I am particularly fond, on which one cannot put an immediate finger and exclaim, Eureka!
