Happy (or not) Valentine's Day!

The color is red
which accentuates the heart
beating as if one

The question is asked
Will you be my Valentine
Now and forever

Kisses are so sweet
Lift her right off of her feet
they are a real treat

Chocolate is yum
Can you please deliver some
or else be a bum

Conversation hearts
Read aloud to each other
Then savor each bite

More Haikus for your Valentine

Love like a fine wine
the knot is made of coarse twine
drink well and be fine

Will you marry me
We wonder what she will say
Maybe go away

Can you give a hug
to a male who likes to bug
while wearing a rug

I dreamt I loved you
Realized it was a bad dream
you are a nightmare

Cupid you are not
Life is blissful and so nice
Since you took a hike

Love forever lost
My heart forever so sad
for the love we had

The Valentine's Day Song

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?

        Hi,

        And, here I am again enjoying your Valentine Poems---I loved the Valentine Song it is still in my head and probably will be until I go to sleep.

        I hope your Valentine Day was wonderful with kisses, candy, hugs, babies all around, your Sweetheart and flowers.

        O yes...'or not'....I liked the line 'when you took a hike'....sometimes when all is said and done that makes Valentine's Day better than we can imagine.

        Hoping you have had a lovely day. I am being Nini today and enjoying very much. I feel very loved.

        Angels are on the way to you today ps

        Excellent haiku, Sunshine. It's the hardest form of poetry to do. I've tried them a decade ago and did get one or two published in print. Thanks for sharing your poetry with us.

        Hi Nell, that haiku was a fun one to create. It was actually for a friend of mine who recently broke up with her boyfriend. She printed it out and has it on her fridge to make her smile:)

        Linda, I don't know how I missed this one but I did. Definitely a different take on Valentine's Day but a most entertaining one. I haven't decided if I really enjoy haiku because I always finding myself counting syllables and not focusing on the meaning. Must be the analytical (or anal) side of me. Still, I got a few chuckles from your wonder haiku so it was worth it. Thanks for sharing!

        I have to really think about this one. I turned on the computer this morning and a certain someone didn't sign out of his Craiglist chat room. He was asking his friends in the fitness room how he could trick his fat girlfriend into losing weight because she was too lazy to realize she needs to do it for herself. Someone is going to be in the dog house this Valentine's Day. Cute hub!

        Thank you Haiku Sue!:)

        Hi Myth, I thought of a few friends and the poems were written in their honor. I like V-Day but I'm more for showing the love everyday:)

        Sending you both some hublove!

        I loved the video! That is so cute :-) The poem is also wonderful! I do not celebrate V-day, but I enjoy all the love and stuff anyways. Your poem was far from the usual V-day item, but I think I enjoyed it more for that specific reason! Great job :-)
