HEY there,
how can I talk to you
I’m kind of shy
see that cloud above
it’s shaped into a heart

Valentine’s Day
not only for lovers
and romance
it’s for everyone
“to fall in love with love”

white chocolate clouds
whip across the sky
sweetness fills the air
breathe in the day
it’s time to indulge in love.
Genie Nakano

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
