Valentine, I looked up in my diaries for a poem that matches. But time judges that I should be wiser now than ever. I read once -in a story for children- that love is wiser than philosophy, and that should exclude love from language. Everyone comes upon valentine with a story to tell, it should be surely a story! Story is almost a standard adverb for Love.

In my love day,
I shall think of the gardens of red flowers,
I shall think of the old seller down the street.

Of master cooks who make

Or shall I think of a beautiful lady and a man holding her hand?

Maybe my thought becomes nicer if she pushes him to the fountain,
then, runs away!

Or maybe I shall think of a father who reserved a very romantic table,
in their favorite dining place,
“but please, can you add five little chairs”

Shall I think of love in pairs?
I’m afraid,
love might be a place!

No, no, it should be a “time in place
Was it place or space?
It’s space!
It’s place!
It is nowhere dear, you’re only dreaming,

A dream! What an idea of love.

Is a dream wiser than philosophy?
If love is a myth,
Then only reality needs it.

We need love in every bit of detail in our lives, because you will never know when does language falls apart.

Enjoy the wedding and bring the gossip :P

Deema said...

hello i'm just back :)


i understand your angle and i appreciate it, and wish to believe in it but unfortunately, i don't
think that love equals life, i wish though :)

as i neither believe that dreams come true, for dreams is an expanded conception of reality in my opinion.

but i will wake you up itha shift issalfa 6awwalat ! :P

The Simper:
Happy supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

thanks for the sweet comment, keep up the little details :)

your comment remind me of "buy me a rose" by Luther Vandross.
-about the wedding, the gossip was hyper and subsequently "unrepeatable" :D
