Who made February the Month of Love? March 1, 2023

still sitting in the freezer of winter

hand-blowing in bone-chilling cold

frosted steam under gray skies

touch lips

grip flesh

probing for deeper warmth

sweating when we find a passionate heat OK so maybe I’ve got the answer to that question but the follow up would be How did this “Valentine” character ever become a saint?
