Valentine



Beach (fabrics) 10x23in


Here, cupped within the brimming horizon,
held with the same yearning gravity
that spins planets courting suns



Innocence Mandala, fabrics, 9in diameter


now, while whirlygig galaxies
bloom on all sides equally infinite




Constellation (detail) fabrics


and lush in your intimate cells,
the DNA couples again,
its patient twining fingers
stroking the braille of wholeness




Zinnias (detail) fabrics


while you scratch, or fart, or sigh, forsaken,
you matter, you are spirit-matter,
the very center of everything,




Moment (fabrics) 16x18 in (available)


the great spaciousness inside the atoms,
the zinging quarks never in one place-time
to call here and now at once;

you, that huge a mystery trueness,
so private and particular and first-time-ever,




Scorpio Rose, detail, fabrics, '97


all the way out and all the way in:

you are made of love.
Love can never leave you.




Jump for Joy (detail) fabrics

  1. It's a wonderful Valentine, unique among Valentines, and I'd hardly call it sappy! Loved your email newsletter, too!

  2. I agree with Stacey. Not sappy. I landed in peace by the end . Delicious. Thank you.
