There are mothers
for everything, and the sea
is a mother too,
whispering and whispering to us
long after we have stopped listening.
I stopped and let myself lean
a moment, against the blue
shoulder of the air. The work
of my heart
is the work of the world’s heart.
There is no other art.
~ Alison Luterman
I’m familiar with Alison Luterman’s wonderful work (highly recommend!) but I didn’t know this poem before. I am thankful that I found it on Claudia’s beautiful blog, First Sip.
