Love poems for you

Happy Valentine’s Day!

On a holiday that invites us to attend to love, I appreciate how the intention of a collective field can amplify whatever we are holding or healing.

There are so many ways to love and be loved.

Self-love. God-love. Child-love. Beloved-love. Dog-love. Nature-love. Stranger-love (but not the creepy kind!). After-love.

I am sharing with you today some poems that cover this ground. For me, each one offers a resting place of grace. I hope you find something beautiful that stretches your heart wider.

Gate C22 by Ellen Bass

Touch Me by Stanley Kunitz

Resignation by Nikki Giovanni

Snow, Aldo by Kate DiCamillo

God Says Yes to Me by Kaylin Haught

Small Kindnesses by Danusha Laméris

Good Bones by Maggie Smith

The Waitress by Sage Cohen

The Summer Day by Mary Oliver

Love After Love by Derek Walcott

Failing and Flying by Jack Gilbert

(I stumbled upon the heart above in a neighbor’s yard. It is composed of fallen camellias.)

Rumi said, “Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” May all that is in you source all you are seeking. Today and every day.

Did one of these poems resonate with you? Do you have any you’d like to add to the love-fest? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
