Heart Song

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.- Rumi

love poem



Longing is the tool of the soul

Drawing us out from our safe foals

The yearn to connect and care

Is ever present is the air

Oh what blissful aroma the heart emits

Though it is far easier to quit

We must step out from our comfortable routines and caves

Entering the world of risk, emotion and waves

Crashing into both life’s challenges and raves

Asking us to to come alive, take a chance and surf the waves

– muse brad

Surf on my dear readers. May your Valentine’s Day be filled with sweet longing.

  1. Thanks so very much Summer. Your post and card are wonderful ideas for sharing the love. I appreciate you, your kindness and your great art. Keep on sharing. And I shared the love with one of your cards. Thanks and Happy Valentine’s Day!


  2. Ah, to leave the “safety” of the shore and dive into love’s waiting waves is (in my humble opinion) the very definition of “living.” The ride outweighs the risk. I love your poetry so…Happy surfing, Dear Brad. xo

    • Hi dear Shauna, I agree, but sometimes I enjoy sitting on the shore watching the waves 🙂 Sounds like you know more about surfing than I do. I loved your post today. To love in whatever form it takes, cyber hugs, brad


  3. Yes, I can definitely relate to the need to enter the world of “waves,” as opposed to the world, perhaps, of stagnant water. At this point I’ve come to believe that, when I’m living a life that contains a fair bit of anxiety (which mine does right now), I’m on the right track.

  4. Thanks Chris. Sounds like a brave and wise course. Sometime I get stuck in the fear. Other times, as you mention, going through it is often the door to another level, insight etc. I appreciate your thoughtful comments, and your blog. brad
