A Heart of Swans

When I saw two swans
in loving embrace,
I realized where
the heart shape came from.

The distance of my heart
from yours
is no further than
a swan’s neck.

A swan has no more salty beauty
than is mirrored
in the waters below
or the sky above.

Water and sky
are both icy blue
as the cold
when I don’t love you.
