if you can trust
the movements of the heart…
But I do.
We rise with the wave of longing
and fall with the crash of regret.
…But this sea is so forgiving.
Do you think it was you
who caused the sky to fall?
No, you are the silent lake
who found the moon in your waters
and thought you had upended the world.
Forget your concerns
about where this wave will crash.
Your pure source gives rise
to both longing and restraint
in perfect harmony
with the unfolding universe.
Yes, even the moon forgives.
She understands this dance
being no stranger to the play of light
in the deep dark mirror of the heart.
