Where Do You Find Your Poetry of Love?

Love, Petr Kratochvil, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

It’s amazing how our hearts become gymnasts that do gravity-defying somersaults when we are loved and in love. Even though we put great emphasis on going overboard on Valentine’s Day, what happens to the other 364 days of the year? Do we put love and loving on hold or do we show unscripted random expressions of love, when it is least expected?

I find that thoughtful gestures and simple pleasures of love can be the best treasures that we could ever ask for and hold dear to our hearts. A few years ago, I was challenged to give a quick example of the essence of love through something simple and unpretentious. Thus, I made a small video that showed a sample of special and meaningful gifts from my husband on an ordinary day just because he knew they would put a smile on my face. And guess what? They did.

SweetHot Addiction

His laughter, his love is all so real
not a fantasy or a nighttime dream
he feeds my sweet addictions tenderly
with fresh hot doughnuts from Krispy Kreme.

My poetry of love on this day was found in¬†a box of hot¬†Krispy Kreme Doughnuts,¬†a container of glazed doughnut holes, and¬†a musical gorilla singing one of my¬†and my husband’s favorite songs, “Sugar Pie Honey Bunch” sung by one of our favorite old school R&B groups, The Four Tops!

Cheese balls, once¬†a staple¬†among holiday¬†appetizers began to get¬†a huge yawn because that little round ball of cheese sitting¬†among crackers or baguettes ready for your guests to include on their party plates, became the joke¬†and bore of the party…next to the fruitcake¬†of course.

Today, we thought why not include¬†an easy to make recipe, for¬†a more festive looking cheese ball than the expected nut encrusted, ball-shaped¬†appetizer. We spotted this Holiday Tree-Shaped Cheese Ball that¬†adds¬†a more celebratory flavor¬†amid your holiday appetizer spread. It’s easy to make¬†and can be prepared¬†and stored in the freezer way in¬†advance of your holiday get-together.

Conversations of Comfort In the Grocery Aisle

Market, Grocery Store, Supermarket, Shopping, Food

My husband and I share shopping responsibilities when purchasing our staples at the grocery store. I, on the other hand, do most of the shopping, simply because who wouldn’t want to get the most for their buck these days right?

My patience with strolling down the aisles looking for good deals, no matter how long it takes is the type of patience my husband does not share with me. He, on the other hand, is very focused to go in, get what he needs, get out and on his way. I like the idea of searching the aisles more methodically, seeking for something new to try, and discovering great sales on staples to stock up on.

While the grocery store would not seem to be the most ideal place to strike up conversations and socialize, I’ve found that the conversations somehow find me. I run into many people with stories, genuine stories of heartbreaking grief, but their loneliness leads them to the grocery aisles finding themselves now making adjustments in how much they are buying. These conversations are like poetry – heartfelt stories told in an abbreviated timeframe.

Thumbing through sale items or waiting for the associate to restock products that have literally flown off the shelves, you may randomly strike up a conversation about that¬†particular¬†out-of-stock sale item, which leads to some intimate details of that individual’s unexpected and sorrowful life changes. Yet, in just a few moments, these conversations of loss, loneliness, and heartbreak lead me to a greater place of understanding, compassion, and gratitude.

I don’t personally know these individuals I strike up such random conversations with. I don’t know if they are rich or poor, their political affiliation, their religious convictions or educational aptitude. I don’t care if they are cultural opposites of me or even their sexual preferences. I just recognize that I am speaking to another human being, another child of God who just needs a moment to talk, and a moment for me to listen. I will probably never ever see these individuals again, but in that one moment in time there is simply an intimate connection of the spirit and shared compassion of the encouragement we genuinely give to others with sincere agape love.
