Story

Your eyes are the color of amber, lit from within by a thousand suns, kissed by the tears of Apollo. In those eyes I see the dawns first light, gentle upon my face. In those eyes, I see an eternity of time, all caught like some prehistoric being, in the moment when you look at me. Yes, your eyes are dryad eyes, filled with secret knowing, and wild teachings. I tread those paths my love, when I look into your forest eyes…

Heartwood is my heartgift to my husband, Bryan. Heartwood is fundamentally a point of convergence, a moment suspended into time caught in the space of one breath. It is the space that love inhabits, infinity in an instant, as if time stood still and all that was and all that will be is carried within the forest song of the heart.

Lyrics

I tread the forests of your eyes
Wild paths within
Dappled sunlight moves us in circles
Gravity of a sigh 

Amber lit by a thousand suns
Drops of luminous time
I know why the aspen trembles
The leaves alight to your smile

Heartwood holds
Safe my frailty 
In your forest eyes

I’ve heard the song of the seasons
Each note the lifetime of light
And I live within each gossamer moment
Where silence hums with life

In the still between each beat of my heart
In the still between each breath I take
Heartwood`s the song
Heartwood calls home
Still is the now of always

Amber lit by a thousand suns
Drops of luminous time
I know why the aspen trembles
The leaves alight to your smile

Heartwood holds
Safe my frailty 
In your forest eyes

Heartwood calls home
Still is the now of always
Heartwood calls home
Still is the now of always
