Can I channel Hallmark?

I just saw this and figured it seems too fun, I'd have to jump in while there was still time. Time being less than 30 minutes, so very tardy, but still legal!

This week's prompt for the Saturday Centus hosted by Jenny Matlock at Off My Tangent was a picture.

This one to be exact. Cute, right? And in celebration of V Day, not VD day, we were also prompted to write our Centus in the vein of a Hallmark Romance card. And we have 50 words to do so.

I've titled my Centus. The Power of Love. Here goes.


The Power of Love

To my Wonder Woman,

As the years go by,
and the wrinkles grow deeper,
so does my love;
now superhuman in strength. 

Your flaws, invisible to me.

You've lassoed my heart
and I can only speak truth when I say
I can't look at you without smiling.

I love you.


  1. So tender and sweet!

    Hallmark should be so lucky to find a writer of your exceptional caliber!

    Great job, Lissa!

  2. This is poignant and touching. Isn't true love, real love, wonderful? I think the concrete images in this piece give it the weight it deserves.


  3. Lissa! OK, you totally rocked this prompt.

    I can actually see this on a card! Maybe you can work at Hallmark in your spare time! I know you're not busy much at all! ha!

    It's been fun this week reading through an entire SC filled with nothing but smiles and romance.

    Thanks for linking up.

    I'm so glad you participated!

  4. This would work. Send it off to Hallmark!
    Best wishes,
    Sorry, I'm late with this comment. I am trying to catch up on those that I have missed earlier!
    Here's mine:

  5. Oh, Lissa, this is so sweet...great job !
