Behind the House



Would you want a heart that doesn’t break?

William
... absolutely not.

I want a heart that
changing rhythm
according to 'music'
breaks up and scars.

William Michaelian said...

Ah, then these roses are for you.

Denise Scaramai said...

... my heart beats gratefully!

Nevine said...

Nor would I. A simply beautiful thought, William. Thank you for a lovely way to experience a morning.

Nevine

William Michaelian said...

As does mine, Denise!

Thank you, Nevine. Here’s to a good day ahead.

No. Those fractures are the crevices in which soil and rain fall. From there, the seed of a small joy knows no bounds.

William Michaelian said...

Beautiful. And it’s only natural, isn’t it, to identify with that seed.

life a vase for a heart in bloom
heart a vase for a life in bloom
bloom a face gone so soon

For healing words such as yours, William, the broken among us rejoice.

What a simple, yet profound and original question. Thanks for this little gem.

William Michaelian said...

We are of a kind, Gabriella — human kind.

You’re most welcome, Lorenzo. I’m responsible in the sense that I did click “Publish,” but I think the rest we owe to the roses. If not for them, the words would never have arrived.

William Michaelian said...

Sick, Erin? I think not. Would you be whole otherwise?

Aleksandra said...

Yes pretty please?
brake my leg or fingers but not my heart....

William Michaelian said...

Fasten tight,
then,

these buttons
on Joseph’s Coat.

Aleksandra said...

..as tight as miss Josephine taught me to do in these kind of situations...
