May My Heart Always Be Open ...

"May my heart always be open to little

birds who are the secrets of living

whatever they sing is betther than to know

and if men should not hear them then men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry

and fearless and thirsty and supple

and even if it's Sunday, may I be wrong

for whenever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully

and love yourself so more than truly

there's never been quite such a fool who could fail

pulling all the sky over him with one smile"

- ee cummings: may my heart always be open to little

*little wire heart by Jennifer Swift ( Jennifer is an artist I heart. Thanks Jen for reminding me to be open to the little things.
