Poetry Mondays

Sigh....Mondays...can be uninspiring to say the least. I think that I will post my favorite poems every Monday- a tad bit of inspiration on a day that can be er....challenging.
Tonight I think I will work on heart openers in my fundamentals class.
I love heart openers, though they are hard for me. I love that moment when you feel your heart about to crack open and you breath gushes into the deep places that you spend most of your life trying to keep dark and secret.... I love the soft look in my students eyes after we have all shared that moment..... I love that everyone is a little freer with their hugs goodbye when they leave the studio....I love that in those moments I stop thinking about how hard heart openers are, and I stop being scared. 
So in honor of opening the heart and losing that fear, I am posting a poem that to me is love. This poem has a very special place in my heart- always and always....


i carry your heart with me



"i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)i want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my h
eart)"
