Hearts and Stone

They hang like chimes

Those hearts dangling over earth and stone

To hear their song in the hushed morning mist

Singing tales of brokenness and healing

Is to wander wonderingly into a pinpoint light

Soft and warm against the cool, hard texture

Of stone

Is to remember being wrapped in your arms

In a way that hasn’t happened yet

In a way that may never happen

Except in the floral chimes

Suspended

Protected

Swaying beautifully

Lit from within

Let us soften love

And meet one day on the path

Through fog and forest

Let us soften love

Until the light of us

Becomes one

As the stone blossoms

And hearts softly sing

Shuffled cards and dealt

Cut the cards and picked one

There must have been some trouble

For the card I drew was blank

The answer is unknown

The answer can’t be shown

There is no answer

The possibilities are endless

The choices are not clear

The way forward is mysterious

Deep in the fog

I try to steer

Magic eight ball says to try again

Later

The way is up to me

Go with the flow

Envision what I want

And go thatta way

Get some advice

But trust my intuition

Don’t get bogged down in my

Contrition

I am spinning in the clouds

Of the blank card that I’ve drawn

I’m up against the bank

Of a storm that’s headed now

I’m hanging on and

Letting go

But did I keep what should be kept

Did I leave what should be left

Or did I mix it up and let go

Of the thing I should have saved

And did I keep the very thing

I should have heaved

Do I shuffle yet again

Or just take a breath

And just begin

From where I spin amongst the clouds

Neither up and

Neither down

Take this blank card that I’ve drawn

And write the story that could be

When the fog clears

If the fog clears

Should the way clear just for me
