The Quest

The heart resides in fragmented nests,
each beat a rhythm of its own desire;

we search for wholeness between breaths,
haunted by a longing – a secret fire –

a quest for knowledge to lift us higher.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Enduring, striving, living; it’s that or we shrivel up and die. Even though it’s hard, I would say a quest is better than the alternative. πŸ™‚ Great writing, VJ!
