Heart, As Sacred Ground

"HErARTWORKS" are here to see...

They come from a place inside of me...

From a place held professionally...

With boundaried gates, cared for respectfully...

A place where stories of grief and loss abounds...

A place so accepting that love mounds...

For "HErARTWORKS" carries the message

"Care in healing",

Contained within a shape so familiar and often appealing...

A place that yields equality of feeling...

Without intrusion of words that can be steeling...

For this is "sacred ground" that we all do share,

The journey of life is a path we often compare...

For these images

Tell the story of growth, longing and healing,

That is open to everyone who is willing...

 

She holds this place right there...

For a community in which she cares,

A place she helps, in her profession to repair,

A place that we all do share...whether we agree or not,

In our community, it's there.

 

So here, I offer, for those to see,

HEART-WORKS to ponder and enjoy from me

 

Lovingly,

Pat Quinn
