landscapes {of the human heart}

home.  mississippi delta.

how to put into words the things, the people, the places that pump the heart-blood?
how to make those symbols go down easy,
hit hard,
lift up?
how to lay it bare without thoughts of rejection and judgment and ridicule?
how not to be afraid?

how to bring to light the complexities of an honest landscape full of
brokenness, bitterness, resilience, rebirth?
how to authentically connect in a world with evermore prevalent themes of
disingenuousness and false intimacy?

how to capture the beauty and decay,
the rawness and truth,
the hope and fallibility?

of the landscapes {of the human heart}.

the undisciplined tongue
