I Love My Loves

Three heart beats




Three beats of smoothly glistening petals

thrown along the path

Of freely befallen fears.

When will it stop

Will it stop

Ever in our trudge along and through

the mountains of lazy detritus.

Dissolving a hazy sequence of fears

Using fear for courageous radiance

Allowing it to immure us into

a rainy turbulence

for all those breathing

this brave prance called life.
