Heart Waves

with each beat of its drum,

your heart shares its salty sweetness.

blood pumping through your body,

oxygen rushing to feed you,

energy dancing around your being.

with each new beat, a new wave emerges,

rippling out through time and space,

flowing through everything in its path,

crashing through matter, life and light.


and so you go,

changing your world

with each ticking second,

with each expanding moment 

and each contracting one.


perhaps you see the ocean of love within?

perhaps you smell its waves?

perhaps you hear its sound?

perhaps you taste its saltiness? 

if only you knew

the power of your heart waves,

you would go swimming every day.
