the way of the heart is not

the path that the world prescribes

is not the even, gentle course

of clearly defined lines

linear, concentric, symmetric.

the way of the heart is not

a journey with a bread-crumbled trail

where the way in, leads you out again.


the way of the heart is

the moment when you find

the light from an internal star

and luminosity shines from within.

and shines so bright, the new trail emerges

towards deeper peace, comfort,

and the cradling of the cosmos.

being held, and holding, the divine.


the way of the heart:

earthen, twisted, threadbare, whole.
