a reminder to you, of you, for you…

April 17, 2012

a reminder to you, of you, for you…

your heart is an ocean.  vast, deep and beautiful.
teeming with life and giving of it’s self.
graceful and majestic,
it energizes the souls of those who witness it’s breadth,
and frightens those who know not the generosity of it’s nature.

like a child learning to swim, i’ve attempted to trust, to abandon
and to cast off into the depths without regard for security.
the stormy seas of my own heart have at times swayed my vision
and made my strokes turn to flailing.

these failings of my heart will continue to fade,
and as they do i set my compass to the deep, vast seas,
and i cast out an invitation in a bottle for you to join this child there.
