Love and Loss

Found wood, poetry


39 x 12 x 2

Each sculpture comes with its own poem by the artist:

Love and Loss

Wood knows loss

and is not scared of her.

Wood knows love

and knows not to hold her;

she is free to come and go.

I talk to Wood about grief.

She listens

and asks

if I want to risk change

or remain stagnant?

Put like this,

I climbed the Summit of Hindsight.

So that I can finally open my fist

and let loss go.

This is exactly when

love pays me a visit

in the shape of your hand.
