“You wrote down the beating of your heart.

It lives in the papers at the bottom of the river.

And after all that you have been through,

you cannot help but forget what you said.

You yearn for shelter,

or shimmer of heaven.

A glance at the things that you once loved…

and have now           

 forgotten.”

excerpt from poem titled Now by Bridget Visser

found in my poetry book “To Hold the Sky”
