your heart

Photo from our wedding ceremony, June 2011

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

From "[i carry your heart(i carry it in]" by e.e. cummings, 1952


Happy Valentine's Day, folks. We generally aren't traditional Valentine's-y type people, so we aren't planning anything especially romantic or out of the ordinary. Although I did buy some heart-shaped molds and was planning on making my famous chocolate cupcakes (I use this recipe), complete with festive toppers, but I'm not sure how many people want baked goods from these hands at the moment. It makes me a little sad to let a holiday go unmarked in some way, but oh well. A poem shall suffice. (More than suffice, actually. Mmmm, I LOVE a good poem.)
