places in my heart


there are places in my heart
so sacred
that no one can go there

so huge in their unspokeness
that no voice dare sound

there are flowers in my heart
whose petals, when unfolding,
touch me
as gentle
as a soft wind

there is a steady flame in my heart,
unflickering,
as constant as the moon
and honest as empty space
