Artist's Description

I borrowed this Apophysis image from Mandy Moore. It doesn’t actually look much like the original now. If you haven’t seen her work you’re really missing out on something. :o)

The hurt you embrace
becomes joy.
Call it to your arms
where it can change.
A silkworm eating leaves
makes a cocoon.
Each of us weaves a chamber
of leaves and sticks.
Silkworms begin to truly exist
as they disappear inside that room.
Without legs, we fly.
When I stop speaking,
this poem will close,
and open its silent wings.
Rumi
