FERAL HEART   acrylic on canvas by Candace Knapp
22  inches  by  18  inches


the tiny feet of the insects
leave delicate footprints upon the earth
and they know what I know
we are walking on the body of our mother

when the owl looks up at the night sky
and knows the stars are looking back at her
I know it too

When the wind speaks through the leaves
and rattles the bamboo
I hear what all creatures hear
We know a storm is coming

but even the storm is one of us
we have one big feral heart
brave and united
