the open heart shines in the darkness -
guided by courage, it remains true.
though feeling deeply,
it resists the urge
to build walls
to strap on armor.
love overrides all fear.
come to life.
*please note: the use of images of adornment in these times of sorrow are not meant to promote my work. i process my feelings at the bench and so these pieces are merely visual representations of emotion and thought.
