A Heart Write

They said it couldn’t be done,
But I did it!
I bypassed hand and mind,
And wrote words with my heart!

Eyes closed, hands tied to rules,
Mind distraught,
The heart spilled ink on pages:
Its mind in control of my mind

Its will stronger than my will.
Heart’s hands - courageous-
Sinoatrial node’s
Ideas are materialized

By Aortal hands.

    ’Its mind in control of my mind’
    My Mind [upper case] is under control of mind [lower case]
    Grosser coarse mind transformed in fine subtle Mind
    The unique expression…thanks Sir

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
