Fulfillment

Given the push from childhood
Fulfillment has become
Such a loaded word
Grand standards to reach for
Implicates wondrous achievements

Is it any surprise
How the masses strive and search
Yet end up feeling
So terribly unfulfilled!

If the above quote is to be heeded
The formula quite simple
Combine ‘today’ and the ‘heart’
And readily available
Is the sum of fulfillment!

‘Today’ so simply
Appears and ticks away
Yet dreaded and labeled
As work day, stressful day
Difficult, long
The list goes on

With a little adjustment
Switching the frequencies
Tuning into the heart
Alas, a little kindness
A little gratitude
Even joy, laughter and light
Again the list goes on

This heart
Not the pumping organ
But the one with no boundaries
At times exposed
All over your sleeve

When allowed to surface
Radiates to share smiles
Gives comfort and spreads wellbeing
It’s power
Infectiously contagious

This is true existence
Acknowledgement of the given time
Your ‘today’
And feeling that ‘heart’ replenish

What great wonder is felt
When ‘today’
Your tool appears
And the heart
Is fulfilled!

Two Hearts in One Frame

two hearts

Mechanically supreme
Guarded by boney bars
Cushioned by spongy sacs
Sits the organ of the heart

Vessels entwining
Chambers pumping
Valves snapping
Fluid flowing
All operations
24/7

Ghost or twin
Yet Another heart
Lays deeper still
So deep
For some it’s never found

It yearns a cry
To be acknowledged its there
Wanting a freedom
To dance and praise
Revealing its secret
To love unconditionally
The very one it inhabits

It is true
We were granted
Two hearts
In one frame

Do you know them both
Have you befriended them equally

One
You cannot live without
The other
You have not lived until you have found

Find your heart
Dig out of its cage
Wear on your sleeve
And shine like a star

As love
Will then surely illuminate
And darkness
But shrink away!
