each heartbeat rewards as itself
its blood flow is the gift given
and also reward received
a nectar unseen but sovereign as delivered
nutrients to enrich, hydrogen to the cells
oxygen to the blood, water providing
metabolic waste removed as takeaways
blood is in the deity of human metaphors
those implicit, seen as figurative yet symbolic
what brain is that mind of heart?
timelessly in service,
electrical fireworks in complexity of deed
what emotions govern the sea of the heart
that the language of being
is in need, for us all to see . . .
