The Breathings of Your Heart

paper-burn

.

Everything

and

everyone

can be

broken down

into fragments

facets

torn bits of paper

splinters of words

this is a superpower of the mind

to take things apart

our memories do this

all the time

we do it

when we

label

judge

give a name to

a thing or a being

while it isn’t always useful

it can be helpful to do this

for to understand the sum total

we seek to understand the parts

which make up the whole

this year

this month

this day

are all a part of

this life

made of paper

burning with heart

.

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
― William Wordsworth
