Why Two Hearts Are Better Than One at Solving Life’s Problems

Alone our thoughts can swirl a tornado,

choke out the sunflowers like the vines of a tomato

But when another heart arrives

and takes your hand,

together you can dive.

There you may find that the sharks are no longer hiding

and the stinging jelly fish was all in your mind.

Are you sure?

Your friend nods.

Yes, all is well; you will survive.

Now you are emerging from deep water caves

and you start to realize just how you have been saved.

Two hearts float above

surfing the waves

and then you land, no longer in a daze.

With warm sand underneath

and the horizon at a distance,

the sight is no longer tangled

and your path is decorated with

gratitude for your friend’s existence.
