The Cognizant Heart

The mirror unstained
Reflecting a spring day
Frogs entering with great songs
Thoughts thinking
Crows cawing
Old wounds calling
wonder of wonders
Ah! But the lunch line remembers,
the septic pump soaking up the darkness,
remembering to invite that part that limps
staggering under the weight
determined to allow the movie star
to embrace the cripple.
Bringing the luminous mind to bear
witness to the fire of the heart.
