~ Shimmering Candles ~

Love comes through the eyes that see
And through the ears that hear,
For people are quite beautiful,
And words make feelings clear.

Love comes through the hands that touch
With unabashed affection,
For only skin-to-skin can love
Maintain its true direction.

Love comes through the tastes and smells
Of fresh and well cooked food,
For in the gift of nourishment
Is much else that is good.

But though love comes through senses five,
Love comes from the heart,
For there resides the greater love
Of which ours is a part.
Linking to:

Happy Valentines to one and all. Until next time....

This is really pretty! I love red and white together anyway, but I particularly like the way you did it with the pops of red bowls and stemware. It was just right.

And your centerpiece is lovely. Love those beautiful hurricanes!
