Map of Your Heart

lifelines

They say that it is written
That souls were made to intertwine.
And as we looped into each other’s lives,
I traced unseen paths in your palm
Running parallel to life lines,
love lines.
I let each one take up home in my thoughts,
step by step retreading the routes,
so that when the day came
that tepid fears made for muddled sight,
the direction home was always clear.

It’s All in the Little Things

Pay attention to the little things,
The tiny pangs and gut feelings,
As they are clues to a truer you.

Watch the way your lips curve into a smile
or how a heavy spine leads you into a slouch.
Pick which one you prefer.

Seek out the minutia of the everyday
And remark upon its persistence.
“God is in the details”

And when the path ahead seems cloaked
With a fog of sound and sights and confusion,
Baby steps.
