POETRY

The Cyclic Heart

The fallen heart
sheds blood to grow
the seed that forms
the heart again.

And juice will flow
so love will sprout
that life may be
reborn anew.

Such life is planted
to replace
each ripened heart
so nothing’s lost.

Thus heart returns
break after break
tear after tear
every new Spring.

Uncontrollably and religiously.
