Shopping Bag

Poetry Challenge Day 154 (Mon Mar 7)

As I’m walking into the grocery store
I see people walking out with flowers,
two or three in fact.
I notice they are all men.
I’m not used to seeing that.
It’s a strange sight, but I manage
to dismiss it somehow.
I grab my items and go through the check-out.
Walking out, passing the floral department,
it suddenly dawns on me,
it’s Valentines Day.
That explains the the whole “men” thing.
I’m so glad I told my love
this morning that I love her
because there are no flowers
in my shopping bag.
