curiosity & wonder


if my heart can rise from death

so there i hid my heart
under shovel full’s of soil
to be unknown
like unmarked graves, locked doors,
or maps of lands i’ve yet to love
to be buried beneath the quiet of the earth
there the secret hope of my heart will rest in stillness

“will it grow from there?” she asked

“possibly not” i said, “but if my heart can rise from death,

then what reason shall i fear what life may bring?”
