Valentine

A wish for you
on this Valentine's Day
that you'll take time to laugh
and maybe to play,
just bury the blues.
Let go your worries,
do something happy,
and giggle in flurries.
Run in the forest,
hug a small child,
grin at the clouds,
and do something wild.
Just for this day,
be perfectly free,
for that is the way
you were meant to be.
Watch how your magic
blossoms in wonder
as lightning flashes
in evening thunder,
and know in your heart
come what may,
I send you my blessings
this Valentine's Day.

ABOUT THE POET:

Ted L Glines has been writing since 1965, mostly rhyming verse and song lyrics, along with some free verse and prose. In the beginning years, most of his works were activist oriented and connected to the "freedom of speech" movement, with many poems published in college literary magazines and the "underground" free press (Village Voice, etc.). Having somewhat mellowed out in later years, Ted's works now lean more toward entertainment and humor. Major influences have been Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London, Patty Burkeen, Silvia Plath, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Wendy Baral Cooper, Shakespeare, H. P. Lovecraft, and Paul Simon. Currently residing in rural east Texas after escaping the battleground of southern California. Peace is good. Ted L Glines passed away in December of 2011.
