beneath a stilled heartbeat

she drives her full life

into a short path

and sits there

contemplating the exhibit

the lines of truths

previously unknown to her

somehow familiar now

birth, solutions, and then precipice

off kilter enlightenment

illusion transfusions

modus operandi revealed

resting beneath a stilled heartbeat

  1. Entering my seventh decade such epiphanies are no longer dramatic but I kind of ease into them slowly with age and seem do know without being aware I did.

    SO many layers you reveal here, beneath the beats of all of our hearts!

    Lovely poem, PM. “…truths previously unknown;” this is called wisdom as we age.
