Fragrance of the heart

fragrance of the heart

fragrance of the heart

I behold with these eyes
the softness of beauty
I yearn to touch
the fragrance
of the heart
which has been torn away
from me.
A ghost
with wonder
how you rest before me
torn away from your own earthen bed,
how long must it be before you wither and fade?
I behold with these eyes
the vibrancy that still catches with the light
beyond this shadow
I long to caress
with wonder
if only I could
plant you within this heart
to retain your precious life
and grant back to me
the gentle tones,
growing in strength
of substance
to my being.

— April Higney

A few days ago I was sent by Juan Carlos Hernandez the poem Passion within written by April Higney to illustrate one of his photos. It was strange as I had not heard of either of them before and Passion within came unbidden out of the blue and yet it captured my mood at the time.

So struck was I that not only did I post Passion within on this blog, I wrote of the incident itself. Synchronicity was becoming the norm. [see Communication with the Soul of the World]

Today I was at Mind Body Spirit hosted by Eden People at Holy Trinity Church in Guildford. I was discussing what had happened, on my way home I find April Higney has sent me Fragrance of the heart, another poem she has written to illustrate a picture by Juan Carlos Hernandez.

For more of the poetry of April Higney, please visit her blog Betweenhearts75.

    Oh heart, friend to my soul,
    alien to all that is not pure,
    how can I save and protect
    you from myself, from all that
    destroys and upsets you ?
    By setting you free from me,
    healing you with love and light. Susan, 06-11-2010
