How does the human heart process grief? And how does this grief inform our spiritual journey?
...I write from pure emotion and I prefer not to describe my poetry, but to allow it to be interpreted on a personal level with the reader.
"In this poem, Elise opens up a bit of her own heart's process as a multi-media visual artist who fuses her own original musical compositions with voice recitations of her own enchanting poetry, and moving visual imagery, to offer us a very unique experience of her own grieving.

Is there something
that could bring you back?
face to face, eyes
to longing eyes -
which could have
foretold by chance
that place your
or is it in desperation
I find myself so
the way roses bend
before the pierce
Or is this the pain
