there was a point in my life when i got so fond of poetry.  although there were a lot of times when i found it hard to decipher their meanings, just reading them created great stirrings in my heart. i even longed for opportunities to join poetry readings.  fortunately, i was given the chance to participate in a poetry reading (january 2010) through the adnu campus ministry. that also meant getting another check on my bucket list.

just today, i again had the urge to look over google and read (again) some of my favorite poems.  here's one poet i really admire and a poem which is one of my favorites. read on (and read it with a lot of heart).. because it's after all, a wednesday :)

i carry your heart with me
e.e cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my baby) 
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

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 with me (i carry it in my heart)
