My heart’s song

was in the natural way

I finally vowed

to go to the core —

to drop everything

and explore

a natural moment

of stillness —

to listen deeply

to nature and art —

to accept only

what was right

in front of me —

without labels,

withought thoughts

of being fixed —

without a need

to understand,

heal or change


I began to listen


Into Nothing

I have held and honored —

set it all down —

watched as it faded back

into nothing.

I have waited

as the perfect pieces


And I have forgotten

and pushed —

tried to make

my own inner art

into something else —


I have forgotten

the importance of the holding

and remembered

as, in my frustration,

it found its own way

and revealed itself to me
