A poem for Valentine's Day


strings make music

even heartstrings

respond to the vibrations

of the universe

 

mythic islands

may quicken some

corner of a foreign field

despite quiescence

 

but gravity's

less potent than

electromagnetism

throughout planet earth

 

scientists say

I wonder what

that means for us who walk it

there's no pulling strings

 

bowstrings slacken

and violin

strings stretched taut across the bridge

may quiver and crack

 

thread gems of days

on strings of gold

love knot the bright beginning

love not strained ends but

 

keep fine purchase

on silken cords

lest pearls be mired underfoot

iridescence lost
