FINE ART > Bending to Love

The Weight of a Leaf
The Weight of a Leaf
oil and wax on canvas
48 x 48 inches


We have bent to love
as a twig bends to
the weight of a leaf.

we have felt the brush of wind,
learned where ripples
breathe under boulder,
listened to the sounds
of a forest growing.

. . .
This poem reminds us that love is about bending or dying to self. The twig bends as we have bent to love. The paradox of dying to live!
