I had been carefully painting the house
of my heart, decorating the surfaces
with intricate designs of glorious
color, insinuating hues, ingenious patterns
joyfully and fearfully weaving
a dazzling tapestry of love

But that's all over

Now, I'm washing walls, polishing
floors, clearing patterned colors
throwing open doors and windows
so as to allow the purity of love itself
to shine through my heart, unimpeded
and dazzle the world with the clear
illuminating light that gives color its glory
and transformation its healing dance

Happy New Year Everyone! I'm linking this to dVerse</a>.
