Collage, acrylic, oil, cwm, gold pigment
These were the two words that escaped,
as I walked out of my house.
Resting high in the sky
was a perfectly round heart,
pulsing crimson red with life sustaining light.
It was the sun-
burning through the morning mist,
all the color of the sky,
resting in her hemoglobin red round face.
True beauty stops you in your tracks-
true beauty takes your breath
and gives it back with wonder.
She opened my day with poetry,
and gave me the gift of gratitude.
As I stepped along the path,
I was aware-
we are here
because of her.
