Water is Wide
By Valerie Cameron Dalmer
Woman and harp lean, embrace
creating an image of
Vesica Piscis (womb of the Goddess)
Through which to birth
The Gift of Sound
This beautiful ancient instrument of bards
resounds at the woman’s gentle touch
as slender agile fingers pluck, play
sweep over sensuous strings.
Creations from the woman’s dreaming
Fill the air, evoke the senses
music so ethereal
you can taste the holiness
as you breathe
Two hearts beating as one
become the metronome
that holds the rhythm.
And I a humble poet, absord the delicacy
Of their strong impassioned love.
