The New Year begins with my heart health less than stellar. New medication, lots of rest, a chakra review and the power of prayer set me up again. During this time I also get back to writing poetry.

Dear Heart
of my body
beat
beat
beat
a rhythm
to drive my lifeblood
on its joyous journey
throughout the endless highway
that has
no beginning
and no end

travel that circle of life
winding over
down
up
and around
again
and again
and again.

I hear you
chugging along with determination
saying…
I think I can
I think I can
I think I can
Dear Heart
of my spirit
you became overwhelmed
with the journey of life
over
down
up
and around
do this do that
be here be there.

Dear Heart
of my mind
I got the message.

When mind, body and spirit
were one
each
in agreement
our physician of hearts
was relieved to hear the news.
He had been
waiting
and waiting
and waiting
for his turn
in helping your journey
winding over
down
up
and around.

Dear Heart of mine
Rejoice
in the journey of life.

With each beat…
a reminder
to do so
with kindness
compassion
joy
and love
to me
and
to others.

Dear Heart of mine
Rejoice!
Rejoice!
Rejoice!
