On how my heart loves you

I wanted to share some updates on the ‘On How My Heart Loves You‘ dress!

I am love, love, loving this little dress. The cotton is soft and very old, and of course this is one of my most favourite poems.

This poem is in my second collection, A Counting of Love.

we measure our days quietly learning about whales, and 

their babies.

parting the sea to birth new life,
singing ancient lullabies until all the saltwater
in the deep wounds of the earth is saturated with love.

this is the deep work of the womb.

— on how my heart loves you.
