Journeys of the Heart

I am     small      fragile

carried on the air like a thought,

a breath, a sigh

filled with colour ever changing

like a bubble      here      then gone,

and in the morning

    I am born again

       here to catch the sun

and let      light      joy      song

fill the spaces

where my heart

    once beat

         for you.

* * * * *

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI remember the ache

so sweet

    so sweet

        so strong

pulling me willingly

to you.

Your kiss

    danced like butterflies

through my spirit.

The thought of you

was like sunlight on the water.

In that instant of sunsparkle,

we stood for eternity

almost.

* * * * *

I am whole       grounded       warm

spinning like a galaxy

around the unknowable

and yet content

in my unknowing

for I am both

here

and gone

as it has always been.
