Words of Heart

—-today i stopped along my way to breathe,
as it had been some time since i had passed here before,
much was the clutter of ancient baggage i had so accumulated,
till from the many aspirations of all that surrounded me;

....i grew, a heavy heart….

—-good natured and kindly objects of activity,
were these favorites who came to play their wares,
what did they know that i wanted none of their things,
and so i closed the door for what seemed an eternity of space;

....and still, my heart grew heavy….

—-’infants of babylon’ where the ideas super-imposed within my head,
these thoughts that left a residue of sickly sweet,
just as when i used to create after the whims of other’s,
who having payed my way drew their interest from past due;

....and so, my heart lumbered on….

—-tis not for other’s to tell me of what i can,
was a passing thought that came riding on leafy winds,
and as this seed lay dormant in the fertile soul of mind,
i knew was time to close this shop from the pecking peeps of outsider’s grins;

....never missing a beat, my heart plied on…..

—-today i stopped along my art-full way to look,
at this rising surge that beats within my chest,
where seeing the goodness of all that has been before,
can be the ‘just is’ of giving thanks for what not yet seen shall yet be;,
my heart,
started to breathe,

....”when liver,
brain and heart,
These sovereign thrones, are all supplied, and fill’d….
Love-thoughts lie rich when canopied with bowers.
” by William Shakespeare and from; Twelfth Night; act 1; scene 1

....and if your still stuck on the ground, well here’s one for you….

....and one more of opened heavens….

Thank you.

”.…as in all my dream-full imaginations, there is all-ways a room filled with what can be, so whenever i need to go some-place silent, i go to that room and reap a creation of ‘wood art’....

Sometimes your words leave me with none of my own and I just sit in thought.
It would be great to see your neck of the woods some day.

Hello Ron
—-thanks for the wonder-full comment….and so I might also add, “that sometimes my words leave me in the depth of thought!”, but then I’m used to that….

Thank you.
