I’m not one for roses and I’m not one for wine
So why would you want to be my funny Valentine?
It’s hardly for my looks, definitely not for my money
What, you love me for what I am – oh well thank you honey
I know it’s pretty corney – hey look the sick bag’s doing the rounds
But it’s Valentines – hence nothings out of bounds.

There will be proposals of that there is no doubt
Probably be bouquets tossed, there will be smiles aplenty and even the odd pout
Someone will leave their (Hall)mark of lipstick on a collar
This will be greeted by the partner, next morning with a loud holler
Squeamishly you’ll crawl and beg, forgive me Valentine
Nothing happened honestly, it was all that bloody wine!
So what ever you get up to be careful how you go
Remember baby steps, take it nice and slow
That way you can be sure everything will turn out fine
Hugs and kisses from me to you and happy Valentine!!!

February ’14 Haikus.
By C. J. Black.

Glistening in sunlight
Passing mansions on a hill
Bankers’ paradise.

Weather beaten face
Cursing the winter weather
Seeking sheltered spot.

In the church of God
Our petitions wing their way
Silently give praise.

Feel the winter chill
Mercury is dropping fast
The larder is bare.

Watch the child at play
Beware of your surroundings
Showing little fear.

On the trail of haikus
A most relaxing past time
Ideas abound.

Attach the dogs lead
Early constitutional
Good hangover cure.

Had my coffee fix
Time for early morning swim
Feeling full of beans.

Heard from far off hills
The sound of music playing
Amber nectar flows.

Compose a haiku
Not the easiest of tasks
One day I’ll succeed.
