Summary

Heartdrop is a chapbook of poems offered to the Beloved. It is a collection of poems that express love unconditionally.

Between

Between her eyes and the palpitating moon

is my firmament of desire

I watch poems hanging on pink branches, like wind chimes

resounding her beauty

to the naked earth - half truth, half fantasy

Yet everything meets in her gaze:

flowers open their petals to the sun

and the oceans evaporate back into the sky

A strange type of alchemy where everything

finds anything, everything except my throbbing heart

Looking out at the horizon

in the sweltering heat of the desert where I stand

I hear the chimes like a soprano of stars, and the wind

further affirming her reality, and further

evaporating myself

into fantasy — that I leap to faith, biting

the edge of the moon

Until her waters extinguish

my fire.

I visited my friend who is a scientist

I visited my friend who is a scientist

He was so busy in the laboratory:

'What are you doing?' I asked

"I am picking up the remaining pieces

from my last experiment" he answered

I watched, curious and steady

'They are like shards of glass, 

but soft and bleeding' I said

"Yes, it is my heart" he replied

'And what did you discover?' 

"That nothing in the world

is heavier

than a broken heart..."

I did not know what to say

so I just watched him gather

the pieces of his heart in his hands 

"But," he explained, "you should not allow

the mistakes of others

to take away your crown and kindness

otherwise, you will become just like them

So continue to write your own fairytale

because it is as real as the sun, moon

and stars 

"It is just that, sometimes, 

your heart needs to be broken

to let love in."
