Heart's Desire (Poem)

Heart's Desire

Step from cover
under the arch

and make no path
where moss grows.

Seek the place where
your window opens

out and also in. Free
yourself to work

the stone blocking
your heart's desire.

Now this is wisdom: seek the place where your window opens. That line brought to me a sudden lightness. Lovely, Maureen.
