Sage Cohen … this is what love does …
from “Dear Luna” by Sage Cohen
this is what love does:
travels to the lowest ground,
then collects in the
carved out places.
Isn’t Sage’s poem gorgeous?
This week is a series of prose, poetry, fiction excerpts from a few of my dear and talented friends. This style of working is out of my comfort zone. So I do hope I’m able to give their words the visual staging they deserve.
I’m learning so much right now about layering and visual centering in complex information sets. It’s great. Oh, and the first piece in this month… Edith Wharton quote won first place in an art/author quotes contest on Saturday. I was delighted.
Sage, I’ve loved your comments here all year. And this poem is lovely. I’ve been reciting it all day, looking out at the snow and the frigid afternoon and feeling the sun’s warm slide right through the window glass.
Niya, you did this up beautifully.
No surprise, but this is a beautiful collaboration.
I’ve also been reciting it over and over. I am fortunate to have many of Sage’s beautiful words around me in my office and home. Very special author and person. And thank you WM for the comment on the piece. I’m SO enjoying this.
Thank you so much, WM and Niya. Every time I look at this, it brings tears to my eyes. It is an embodiment that feels so true. To be carried on the current of another’s art, and to have one’s words a little closer to the sun because of it — this is magic!
Sage, I was cleaning my desk and came across these words on a 3.5:
Throw your shoulder
into the weight
of door lay down
condition roll in
the sweet hay
of horse secrets
on the nothing
~ Sage Cohen
……. okay, okay, give me a break you amazing writers! Don’t you know I have to run to the studio over and over now? : )
Seriously, this one just might need a little visual merriment.
