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

About wordvessel

Aloha! This blog is a window into the active mind of a wife, mother, woman and individual. I may be busy every moment of every day, but I still have time to think. Many seasons have blossomed and faded within my life, and this blog has endured through all of them. It is safe to say that my writing has matured because of them. I hope that you will be inspired to think in fresh ways as you read my writing. To Jesus be all the glory.
