d’Verse Quadrille #134- Heart

See the source image

Undisciplined is the heart.
Like a puppy,
Eager to please,
Wiggling its way in and out,
Comingling joy and sorrow
-moments apart-
Yet, unknowing.

Feelings ARE good.
But never secure “the good”.
Hearts ARE essential.
But, let’s avoid placing them ‘in charge’.

I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Such beautiful, visceral, and wise advice. It’s always good to let the brain be captain–if the heart is, we may not see clearly the path or what we may overlook. Extremely well said!

    1. It would be a sorry thing not to listen to our hearts, Sadje.
      But allowing them to be “in charge”, isn’t any wiser than leaving a puppy totally unsupervised. That never ends well. πŸ˜‰

  2. I love the duality, delightful crafting of both a celebration of our emotions while reminding us to not let it rule us. I admit that the concession of taking the goods with the bads was particular powerful. Delicious stuff!

Tell me something good...
