I wander
Along on
My feet
Blinded by
Noise and
Life’s heat

Never lost
I am
Faithfully guided
By my
Dear heartbeat
Love’s repeat

My sustenance
My friend
My compass
Drawing me
Ever closer
To my
Journey’s end

These beats
Travel through
My body
And beyond
Rippling through
Particle and
Through frond

These beats
Life’s drum
Sustain magic
From brain
And from
Smallest thumb

These beats
Take me
Call me
Forward to
The moments
I long
To meet

    Yes… soothing and inspiring. I know my cat likes to lay right over my heart, so we can feel each other’s heartbeats (his is much faster than my own). But it is such a unique kind of bonding, like parent and child. I love it!

    Our heartbeats are amazing! I’m glad the meter works, I’m not sure what inspired me to do it but it’s different – maybe actually like a heartbeat. It’s lovely just listening to the heart beat

    The heart… guide, measure, method and meaning. The meter of this poem entranced me. Literally. Like meditating on my own heartbeat…

    But I suppose that was its intention, at least partially. Love it, David! šŸ™‚
