  • Joyous Heart Beating
    by Michelle M. Mead

    I walked down
    from the trees
    a joyous heart
    beating

    I stepped into
    your leaves
    a softened man
    sleeping

    beneath rusty
    old roofs
    and white-walled
    ghost havens

    I listened to
    Beethoven
    and fed
    desperate ravens

    the hills
    always speak
    to skies
    lilac and yellow

    in whispers
    so meek
    like the strings
    of a cello

    we settled
    in then
    to a sky song
    so fleeting

    and danced
    to the beat
    of a passion
    repeating.
