These Hearts, 6 Varied Interpretations…

Photo taken on one of my desert adventures. It struck such a strong symbolic chord with me. Too perfect to not photograph and write on. Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading.

A heart separated,
Broken preceding.
Breaking still,
But beating.
——-
Independent at last,
Finally free.
With wounds and scars
Easily seen.
——-
Standing alone,
Yet afraid to leave forever.
Close it remains,
Unable to sever.
——-
Pain and loss.
Time and decay.
Eventually,
Ripped the heart away.
——-
Fallen from the largest part,
No longer whole.
Longing to be reunited,
But God’s taken their soul.
——-
An island of love,
Once flourishing.
In an instant shattered,
The heart will keep beating…

A Future as One…

Swing with me

In a world of true make-believe

Where we are free

To embrace our dreams

Of tomorrow and today

Plans swirling as we play

Hold my hand, I’ll show you the way

Swing with me for eternity

Common Moment…

Image

Gathered together as strangers.
Connected by fascination.
Experiencing the shared moment,
Eyes lifted in amazement…

Pause And Consider…

If we loved others as we love ourselves

Would that be loving them at all?

——Giving is contingent on having something to give

If we love ourselves as we love our neighbor…What would that look like?

They are one and the same, interchangeable

 

If we expect to be forgiven the same way that we forgive

Would our forgiveness be fleeting and conditional?

Would we nurse resentments while we live?

 

If we took more than a moment to examine

What we think and believe

If we paused to consider at all

Would we find unsurfaced contradictions in understanding?

Would we ignore, or seek remedy?

 

We are connected, one to the other

Just below the surface we intertwine

Contributors to the same light and same darkness

Existing in realms hidden

The notion of our own island is an illusion

Love is the ultimate answer, all inclusive

Love of others, love of self

We are created with purpose

Hatred fuels separation

Poisons the soul

Assaults our brothers and sisters

Builds walls where none should go

Life is so much more than our own desires and designs

I wish you love for right now and all times
