A Many-Splintered Heart


It is with great care

I tread

Lightly upon your clean and emboldened heart.

It is approached by many

For comfort, surprise, and challenge

To allow us, your friends, a moment

To test presuppositions, worn and needy

Just what will I do  with this one precious and wild life?

(Thank you, Mary Oliver!)

What will you do, with yours?
