remember when... a new painting!

16 x 20 acrylic on canvas

Again And Again, However We Know The Landscape Of Love

Again and again, however we know the landscape of love
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others
fall: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lie down again and again
among the flowers, face to face with the sky.

~Rainer Maria Rilke

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

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)

ee cummings

* I shared two poems today as I felt them both
intensely beautiful and fitting...

My computer displays your white text on a light yellow background, so I can not read your post, but I love the painting.;)She seems to be in a contemplative mood.;)

Calli said...

Caio~ What was a sweet thing to say....thanks so much!

Zuzana~ Yes! She is in a contemplative mood.
Sorry about the display.
It happens when the connection is slow or a browser is misbehaving ;)... It's supposed to have a painting of mine as the background.

You both are very kind...xo

I especially liked the flow and dauntless feet of the rhythm. Provocative in a sweet kinda way.

Gary Keimig said...

Great renditions, Calli. Love that poem. Very sweet and so heartful.

Excellent work. There is a lot of layered emotion on her face and that is not easy to execute.

Calli said...
