At the Heart of Things


That searching for the heart of things.

What does it mean, after all and where does it spring from?

And what is it, exactly, or even vaguely?

Too perplexing or taxing to examine?  Too frightening?

Well, there’s always shopping or cleaning the house.

Important things to tick tick the clock – like a career

or planning a vacation.  What would be the perfect pair of shoes

for someone else’s wedding?

There’s always someone else’s book to read.

There’s always another early summer iris to look at…always.
