She carves dolls into people’s hearts

Her hands carve beauty from the dead,

with the brightest of eyes,

searching for the life enshrined

in plastic.


She finds it’s heart beneath the skin,

and her tools bleed swarf

with surgical precision

making life.


Inside, the girl grows again,

her joyous life spills over

creating dreams that open hearts,

and there is life once more.


(Just a quick NaPoWriMo freelance piece, based on my gorgeous wife carving out a Blythe doll. She does these as a break from making the most amazing Artist Teddy Bears. Check out her dollies here:
