Heart Leaps

#Poem – sixth heartspace

As the moment of wonder
Leads me into its myriad
Of fears and inspirations
I begin — however tentatively —
To ponder the mere shadow
Of substance that I can offer
With my longings and loves.

Then again, I hold sacred
The power of “the one”
When it is someone else.
Why not hold it so, when
It is me.

Emboldened by my
Simplistic realization,
I again offer up my
Dearest, open-hearted
Love. Ready for risk
And reward — whichever
May come this time.
