Ninth heartspace

#Poem – ninth heartspace

(give the heartspace)

Given its opening
And closing,
This heart is less
A witness to
The outside world

And more a testament
To its own inner
Habits and occasional
Hermitages.

Not too priestly though
Is its reckoning.
It is more of an
Artist:
Full of itself at times
And crushed by
Its own weightiness
At others.

Tested in the past,
It sometimes hovers
At the edge of glory,
But imagines that
The edge leads to
A horrid abyss.

Still, this heart
Returns repeatedly
To this cusp of
Brilliance:
To the solar system
Of related orbits
Where it is both
Sun and
Moon
To the planet
Of Love.
