The Sound of a Beating Heart

The sound of a beating heart

is heard on Day 21

is evidence of life,

capable of feeling pain.

The sound of a beating heart

is quickly followed by eyes, ears, lungs, arms, legs,

and blood flowing through a tiny heart and even tinier veins.

The sound of a beating heart

is connected

to reaching fingers with miniature fingernails,

to an active mind.

The sound of a beating heart

is the first step towards

hiccups

and dreams of dancing, running, walking, kicking,

laughing and embracing life.

The sound of a beating heart

fills our ears.

It could be yours, it could be

mine.

The sound of a beating heart

is the symbol of tomorrow.

The sound of a beating heart

fills the air with its silence.

It is no more.

Tomorrow

Is

Aloha! Thank you for visiting the Weeklythoughtexhange. I hope you enjoy this healthy exchange of ideas and thoughts. I am a middle school language arts teacher and relish active discussion, frequent reading, writing for leisure and growth, and immersion in new ideas and thoughts. Some of my favorite pastimes include being outdoors with family, friends and pets, traveling the world and country, and embarking on new adventures wherever they happen to find me - in my own backyard or on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
