  1. ❤ ❤ ❤ Deep as the infinite, feels like a message from the dream world. Clarissa P-E talks about the sacred heart in her lecture series, "Mother Night." I love how you symbolize it in your art. I see that paper is bigger than it looks by the size of your hands. I wish you could share this with Clarissa, she'd love it.

  2. This is beautiful. There’s a timeless feel, like this is a cycle that happens over and over. From decay, the breath of stars and angel voices.

    The art is beautiful, too. It makes me think of Japanese fans and screens.

    1. Thanks Merril. I made the art a long time ago, but I was looking at it this morning when I was looking to see if I had art for something else. And then I visited the Oracle and they just fit together

  3. Wow! I don’t know if you were brought up a Catholic, but the reference to the sacred heart and the red hands holding the heart bring back so many memories for me. The painting is also very like a Claddagh ring, the sacred and profane.

    1. I was not brought up Catholic, but I associate the sacred heart with Mexican Catholicism (which incorporates much indigenous cultural belief) and Mary. I’ve seen Claddagh rings, but didn’t know anything about them except that they were Irish and wasn’t thinking about them at all, yet you’re right, it fits so well. This poem truly came from the Oracle. But She knows how to tie things together with layers of meaning we only see afterwards.

  4. I love the shape of this poem, Kerfe, like the tracing of a heartbeat monitor or (star) breaths in and out. I also love the isolation of the word ‘magic’, something we all needs in life, death, and the hereafter.

  5. Front page of the New York Times today lists the names of those who have died of the virus — the sum of that is front door to your poem, so vastly mooded into the heart. Very rich honey here. – Brendan
