A Cup A Pillow A Pocket An Eye

How can we hold within ourselves a whole heart, a healthy heart and a happy heart? Wanting to understand more fully what it might require to foster all three, I painted and wrote for A Cup A Pillow A Pocket An Eye.


Spend a little time with me as I share my story and muse and meander my way through the how and why of cultivating a safe place, a soft place, a place for memory and knowing and a place for compassion, understanding and sight.

handbuilt and sure
a cup
a vessel to hold
houses the soft beat
ba-boom of the soul

placed here and ready
a pillow
fashioned for rest
nurses the tenders
in feathers pressed

kept close, beloved
a pocket
as deep as is wide
swells full of memory
stitched round by time

sighted and sage
an eye
sees the whole and the part
holds it all dearly
knows now the heart
