Endlessly the heart beats. Every once in a while
It may skip one because of some wonderful thing
Having happened that makes one feel a certain way.
That it beats at all means it has something to say
To the world that gave birth to it. It’s offering
What it knows best which is how to make others smile.
It pumps blood through the body much in the same way
That the earth moves molten metal throughout its core.
This movement creates the electromagnetic
Field around the earth. Blood and metal are both thick
And the iron within the blood does account for
The field that the heart generates day after day.
The heart’s electromagnetic field becomes more
And more refined and it extends farther out from
The body where it intermingles with others’
So emotional communication occurs
At that level. The heartbeat is the sacred drum
Of the body. It’s wonders are ours to explore.
Interconnected bubbles of heart energy
We become as a species and a consciousness
More aware of its function. The heart is the way
To the soul and it is from that place that we pray
That our sacred survival is not of distress.
Our hearts communicate rather literally.
