My heart compass knows it’s north

fountainI came to your orchard

lured by the promise of grapes and wine.


When I arrived, I saw my folly

there were no grapes, or wine

and no point in seeking them either.


But then you pointed me to a fountain

a wellspring within

with water so sweet that my whole life opened

in one breath.


And I realised that this thirst for grapes and wine

could hardly be foolish

After all, it led me here…


It seems this heart-compass you gave me

knows its true north well.

    Beautifully said about ‘the heart knowing it’s north’. So often I’ve worried what “direction” I’m going, always to find whether it looks the way I imagined or not, or if it is completely unknown… my heart is always guiding me exactly where I need to be. Learning the lessons I need and at my deepest level of Being… actually WANT! To rise up like a lotus from the murky bottom, to open up to the light of the sun.
