The Necklace - Poem by Robert Hiers
I watch you; clothed only in your necklace
A wreath of small stones encircles your neck
A row of larger stones nestles in the smooth hollow of your throat
One large stone of brilliant vermillion is resting on your heart.
I watch the heart stone cycle with your breath;
and the more delicate motion of your resting heart.
It moves me, this weightless part/not part of you
I want to catch the tiniest reflection of myself in it –
your heart of hearts.
