To celebrate love today and every day, enjoy one of my recent poems:
The heart begins its dance in a very private place. It needs not be told how.
The beat is steady and the music is strong.
When it emerges to be of this world, it is forced to learn about pain.
But the beat is still steady and the music is strong.
People ask things of it and question its worth. It sends its love out but often comes up short.
Yet the beat is steady and the music is strong.
When the heart knows it is safe and offers love to another,
Then, that heart feels safe and offers love to yet another.
Then three hearts beat steady and the music is strong.
The dance goes on and on and before you know it,
Everyone’s heart feels safe and every heart feels love.
The beat is steady.
The music is strong.
The dance is forever beautiful.
