Embracing Love: Celebrating Valentine’s Day with Heartfelt Gestures

February is one of the months that I adore (along with October and December, then comes May), I love the colors of winter. That stillness that is felt in nature combined with the silent underground work of the roots, that weaving in depth. The tension that is preparing to explode in spring.

And then in February there is Valentine’s Day, a holiday that I love very much, the celebration of love. Some encounters are destined to last a lifetime, some others while others only accompany us for a while. . This Valentine’s Day, let’s dive into the depths of love with authentic gestures and sincere expressions. Explore the beauty of celebrating love in all its forms, from romantic relationships to friendship and self-love. The essence of Valentine’s Day, where every moment becomes an opportunity to appreciate the bonds that enrich our lives. We certainly celebrate a person but above all love, in all its forms and the ability to fall in love. This poem is a masterpiece, it could be the perfect card next to some red flowers and chocolates, an overture…

A perfect gift in addition to the flowers and chocolates, with the card and the poem, could be to give an experience: an afternoon spent creating with my mindful creation approach, or to give a unique, unrepeatable work of art like the person who receives it. For those who are single, the same thing applies, because the most important person in your life is yourself!


Demons and wonders
Wind and tides
Yet in the distance the sea
has withdrawn
But in yours half-opened eyes
two small waves staid
Demons and wonders
Wind and tides
Two small waves to drown myself
