(g) Love 3 Revolutions /MLMM (2.3)

Love 3
Revolutions
(haibun)

Our hearts beat like that of the sun. A constant pulse –
Occasionally overshadowed by our racing brains.
blood a brilliant hue of red – if bled.
Who could possibly walk upon the sun? Though –
Too often we allow others to trample upon our souls…
Yet for those who are kind – we open our arms wide.
Ever careful to keep just a few secrets, for sanity’s sake –
Like what is it that is really at our core?
Are we really adventurous or a total bore?
That twisted traveled road sometimes in circles tread,
As only we can master our shifting often fraying thread –
Those burning dreams, oft forgot – once hot
Fade like burnt off morning fog once we raise our head

rising, setting disc –
a steadfast beat; even when
there are cloudy skies

no one is able to enter, invite them as we may”
