Heart Vision (A Poem)

Yesterday, I posted about my sister Jackie. She came through the surgery well and everyone is hopeful -- this time is the last. Thank you so much for your support and prayers. You've made a difference.

Yesterday my blog friend Joyceann at Peaceful Legacies posted another poem/card reading in her series on Rumi and his poetry.

Though the whole poem captivated me, two lines in particular leaped out from the poem she included, The Water You Want.

I am the one with heart vision.
I have torn open the veil.


The following poem moved through me, the words, inspired by those two lines, writing themselves.


Heart Vision

In my heart vision
I tear away
the veil
that blinds me
to nothing
but your truth
casting out
my belief
that I will
fall
into the dark
stagnant abyss
of my fear

Silently
I rise above
the fog of my delusion.

Truth shimmers

dancing in the light
of our fear
held silent
in arms of molten lead
pinioning us to the pain
of believing
truth will kill
the love we seek

Searching
for the way

I find myself
listening
to the sound
of my ears
opening
to hearing

the truth
where hope
rises
into the mists
of my fear
falling
into nothing
but Love.

Joyfully
I embrace
the vision of my heart.

Hi Cesar, How lovely to meet you and thank you so much for dropping by and encouraging me.

I shall be visiting you for a longer spell -- I peeked in and was intriqued!

Today, I'm off coaching at Choices, a personal development course and must run -- have a beautiful Saturday.
