Poetry is Breathing

“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 sweet)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 (I carry it in my heart)”


― E.E. Cummings

(From a photography project at my school where I teach photography. I took a portrait of each child with something they love, and for this young lady, poetry is breathing as it gives her life.)
What a nice thing to do for the young people! That special thing is now forever in a photo! A wonderful piece of prose!

I love the soft colours in this, it really emphasizes that the girl is daydreaming or thinking about something.
