Heart of the Matter

Poem note: a somonka is essentially 2 tankas on written on the theme of Love.

Submitted in response to Amanda & Ineke’s A&I Poetry Challenge, Aug 2018 to write a Heart poem.

This is one of my favourite pieces of music, and I thought of it as I reread the poem. It is usually soloed by a violin; the cello gives it an interesting texture. Enjoy!
