Rhubarb pie & Cummings in my heart

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 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)

Eva, i just love this post. that's a beautiful pie you made. i imagine it goes perfectly with e. e. cummings. I had never heard of Olafur Arnalds, but what gorgeous music; it reminds me of Amiima quite a bit, and i love them. thanks for making my morning. :)

Thank you so much for your kind words, Shanon! I love Amiina too, I saw them live once {I had to share this piece of valuable information with you}. Olafur and E. e. Cummings are my two all-time heroes. Glad you've enjoyed them too.

I've seen Amiina once too; years ago with Sigur Ros. a beautiful night for sure, and one of the best shows i've ever seen. cheers to fantastic music. :)
