Snow melting off roof,

that slow joyous drip

of icicles melting 

on Valentine’s Day

when lovers celebrate reunion

as snow and light unite

to produce the liquid symbol

of love’s element:

its flexible reaction,

its buoyant resistance,

its communal unity of molecules

that course through

our hearts and heads

reminding us of wonder

in the moisture of a kiss.
