Life is more about hearts beating faster

     than about hearts beating.

Like the tree that falls unobserved,

     can there truly be life without feeling?


It is the exchange that completes the circuit,

     the transfer that makes the moment,

     moments that make up a life.


Joy to joy,

Love to love,

Heart to heart.


But numbness breeds no exchange, no transfer.

It is like a lamp without a light.

Cage the songbird and she won't sing.


        ~  ~  ~ 


A young girl sits on a bench.

She does not at first see her truest love approach.



  eyes meet...

  hearts leap...

  beating faster.
