The Heart

This post is for everyone who wanted to know where they could find a copy of the poem I mentioned in the post,  A Love story about The Heart. Greg O’Connell   has kindly given me permission to publish his poem here.


The Heart

The human heart
has four chambers
and is about the size of a fist.

But anyone who has
been in love knows

that it also has a room
where a soft light glows
and a compartment
where the sea echoes
and a container
which holds a river
and an alcove
where trees climb the hillside
and a recess
filled with a beach
and a pocket
where the mountains live.

And anyone who has
made a vow knows
that the heart is closer
to the size of the sky

and in it
is the sun.
