The Day Before Heart Day

We love ee cummings.
He is able to write a few simple familiar words and place them side-by-side
to create a window through which we see eternity.

So, on this day before “Heart Day” here are a few lines at the end of one of his poems:

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

e. e. cummings

I carry your heart-four simple words
Plus, six more simple words: I carry it in my heart.

A powerful image that creates wet eyes!

I carry your heart.
How close, gentle, desiring, willing, present.
The lover to the beloved,
the beloved to the lover,
ONE, with no separation, no break.
Each, carrying each.

In their hearts.

Take delight in this day of days before Heart Day
