Heart Expansion

in this world of the Grinch,
i am realizing tis not a cinch
to make room for my heart to expand
to include all of the whos in wholand

when all i seem to do is fret
my mind running with a litany of regret
c’mon c’mon c’mon i say
rushing towards the end of today

like a doctor in a malpractice suit
i have lost my patience (sic) to boot
my sickness a symptom of my dis-ease
my mind in a permanent brain freeze

moving too fast to stand still
seeking solace in the latest pill
yet me thinks i see a tiny opening
something beyond mere hoping

and so i make the effort to slow down
to let the seed break my fallow ground
ruah wind blows through me
and then slowly my life is an opening
