heart

heart –
that shame free
shameless
robust,
stubborn,
petal tender
whimsical butterfly,
emotional fool
cauldron
beating unabashed
no matter what
caged bird
straining
against ribs
to sprinkle
tenderness
river
where needed
assuaging
hurt
shower love
greening arid

a heart
that courts
full blown grief
Brought on
by self
Upon self
Implosions
Explosions
Yet this heart
of mine eschews
dates
With fear
ever crooning
Que sera, sera
Whatever will be,
will be
