St Valentine

url

Do you celebrate St Valentine and the tradition of courtly love,

Or is your celebration not focused on spiritual things from above?

What do your senses speak of when faced with what thrills you?

I’ll list some of what are mine, there are only a few.


Awe and wonderment at Caravaggio’s talent at painted pain.

A choristers high pitch does exactly the same!

Mirella Freni as she breaks through that note.

Affects me deeply as I feel so remote.

The existence of tranquility in a place I’ve often been,

Reminds my conscience of beauty that’s all around but seldom seen.

The light, simple touch from the woman whom I so deeply adore

Awakens my sense of selfishness as I crave for nothing more!


However, you celebrate this day of a Saint

Celebrate love without inhibitions of shyness or restraint.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
