there seem 2 b 3 different poems here? you take of using precious time to get dirty together then but head off instead in the next verse to dig clams? bizarre lol. the 3rd poem is the last verse which has a truly beautiful image of the heart zipper ....i would have liked to have read that poem : )
Wow! your words are rich in details and the emotions are very tender sprinkled with a wee bit of humour & i was so drawn in with the clam digging & nature references. very cleverly written; i love the zipper idea & it is my absolute pleasure to read such a gorgeous and emotionally fulfilling poem!
p.s. the picture is gorgeous too!
