Heart Awakening

As your heart awakens

Your senses expand to fill the void

That was never known before your heart had grown

Your eyes seeing the stillness, the movement

The dance of life

Your nose filled with colours and aromas and

Tastes of the day and night

The touch of the lily and the mighty oak

A sense so pure you could almost choke

The feelings inside imbued from another

From nature, of love

So innocent, so knowing

So connected to all and above

The trickle of water zinging in your mouth,

A coolness, a clearness so profound

You never tasted before

The vibrations of sound, so near so far

Alighting your ears to drink from its core

No visible sound can be heard as the leaves move

Yet somehow the gentle rustle is nestled in your being

And so the heart awakens…
