Heartlines

By Claire Doble

The heartlines that stretch

like yarn

like vapor trails

like ink from your pen

winging its way

in a letter you sent

like a lit road at night

seen from the sky

that jeweled line of bright

beaded with light

like blood from a scratch

or a virtual smile

from you to me

across the miles

  1. I can see a similar ‘jewelled line of bright’ from my home too. I love to sit and watch the twinkling lights and imagine the lives of the people who live within them.
    Thank you for a lovely sentiment of the virtual smile.
