How To Grow A Heart





She picked up a rock
from the beach but
threw it back into
the surf because
it wasn't finished
yet.

I pocketed an
incomplete one
beginning to be
a heart and found
its twin close by --
completed.

I'm saving it for later
when she might need
a visual reminder.

Darling, see this?  This
is what surrender
and patience
produces.
