As she sheds the layers of her heart
Laying aside fear finding love’s start
Slicing away to find the spark
Lighting the path out of the dark

This is beautiful! I can relate to the words, the sparkles …
We’ll always have a sparkle connection!
Yup – like Broken Sparkles, I can relate to these beautiful words too 😀 xx
When we allow ourselves a bit of vulnerability with laying open our hearts, that’s when love can ignite. Lovely.
It’s been a tough week, but our poetry pulls us out when it can.
Four lines! Just four lines, and the meaning delivered.
Impressive indeed. Both-the meaning, and the little wonder poem.
I stand on my tippy toes a lot and short is the only way for some of us.. Big Smile!
very beautiful lines!
Appreciate the comment and the visit.
So hard to think of being that open, that vulnerable, and yet this poem holds the key to possibility. Great poem, Michael. (I can’t believe what you said on my blog about the church ladies and the “crossed legs,” I roared!!)
Find the light. Your poem touched a sensitive tooth. Didn’t mean to be so graphic… take that back.. I did.. Envy, strife and gossip pull good churches down.
Thanks Ina. I’ve been using a tow truck lately to pull them out of me. smiles
I tried but had trouble with the color scheme on your blog. I did see my favorite cowboy though!
Beautiful, as always… 🙂
It pays to take the chance…lovely!
What a boring and lonely place without a chance.
I love the first line. Simply stunning, great submissions!
I appreciate the visit and the comments. Thank you.
