several years ago i found this poem in the stuffy library while researching for my thesis. the author wasn't popular, but this poem is nevertheless one of my favorites.


ambiguous love poem
by martha elizabeth

what joy,
to love as an infant loves,
enchanted by a smile, a voice
the touch of one finger
i would have settled for too little,
had you spared it
the small hope is hardest to renounce
because it seems possible,
poor sparrow of desire,
wrung and discarded
below the kitchen window
a jaybird screams from the roof
the teakettle shrills into silence
that invisible realm
painful as steam
which turns to water in my hand -
wiped across my forehead,
cool, like a blessing.
you remind me
how alone i am.
no one else consoles me like that.

"The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" is one of my favorite books, Nik. Have you read it? =)

Hi! I was searching (googling) in google images for a picture of a heart. The one in this blog posting came up. I was looking it up because I wanted a background to write the following: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind...." (From Matthew 22:37 in the Bible). The heart is a wonderful, full, and joyful place when God is the king of it...." Just felt like I should share that with you.
