Circulation







Observe my heart,
watch as it fills with blood
and pumps it out again.

Note that it is a rhythmic thing
like a drum beat or a tide.

Observe my heart,
watch as it fills with love
and pours it forth.

Note that it is a rhythmic thing
like a drum beat or a tide.

Understand that
the more love it gives,
the more love it summons forth.

It is a rhythmic thing
like a drum beat or a tide.

Understand that
the force of love is potent,
it contains powerful energy.

Like a drum beat or a tide.

Know that,
with persistance
it can erode any barrier.

Like a drum beat or a tide.

Know that,
with a heart full
of unconditional love.

Like a drum beat or a tide.

We could change the world.


Written for Three Word Wednesday using the prompt words - erode, heart, observe.

Sweet! Love the beat of the repetitions!

Rinkly Rimes said...

The heart beat's rhythms are captured in the beat of the poem and the repeats emphasise that.

Yes, with the repetition the poem has much more to say.

Powerful stuff. I love the content and the form cleverly mirrors the beating of a heart. Beautiful!

Circulation is deceptively irregular..this piece gathers force..builds up strong and strong..maybe we can change little pieces of the world..if not the big old one itself..Jae

It fills and then it pours forth. So true.
