I went through a phase where I kept seeing the heart shape everywhere I went. I wasn’t looking for it, these shapes just popped up out of nowhere. And then a poem would just occur to me and I would write it down. This one time I went for a walk along the beach and then I sat down on a tree log. And there in the sandy bit between my feet was a heart shape made of the shadow the sand was casting across. This heart shape poem was the result.
Sand and Shadow Make Love
Sand and shadow make love
One says to the other
You are so glorious
That you wedge yourself in secret corners
Contemplating a single particle of you
Recreates the whole universe
You are so graceful
You allow beauty to eclipse the sun
And during the night
you dress us all
because you let them switch places
