Heart’s Eye

Heart’s Eye

Who can pass a bookstore door
and fail to note the vellichor
or fail to feel within their heart
the message of a piece of art?

A  poignant poem or pithy quote,
well-loved and thereby learned by rote,
is a means by which we might denote
that part of us that we devote

to what we can’t repudiate—
that part of us that is a gate 
to a special way of seeing—
the heart’s eye of a human being.

Word prompts for today are art, repudiate, vellichor and denote.

      Thanks, Sadje. I barely got that one in under the wire. I had a bad night Monday night and only slept for a couple of hours. Came home after medical tests, fell asleep at 4 and slept until 11:30 P.M. Got this published less than 2 minutes before midnight, but for some reason it never showed up in notifications, so I reblogged it and voila! It would have been the first time in seven years that I haven’t written and published a poem!
