Heart Smiles

a place to collect the poetic ramblings of my wayward heart

HEART SMILES

sunshine warms my eyelids

lashes flutter

muscles relax

thoughts still

and all of me is content

restful work and busy hands

guiding me twords peace

new green leaves rustle

and flowers fight to unfurl radiance

in this moment my heart smiles

honest laughter brings tears

running crystal rivers down my nose

for a moment the emotion in my heart

--even the places i've let no one see--

matches the emotion

proudly displayed on my face

for the world to see

this is all i've fought for

for so long

my hopes and dreams and goals

just to breathe

INHALE

feel my feet rising

body spinning

sparkles floating

and all the pretty background music

EXHALE

tough down to reality

eyes open

INHALE

heart smiles

The End
