Subtle Revolutions
By Don Iannone











Subtle changes in all of us,
over time and outside of time.
Our minds force us to live in time,
but remember the heart's beat is always
just one step ahead of time.
Things we scarcely notice,
like the replacement of every cell in our bodies
every seven years.
Or things like the maturing of our heart beat,
once it knows love.
These are no small matters,
as you can plainly tell.
Revolutions happen daily,
both inside us and around us.
All this reminds us to pay closer attention
to how we are in any given moment.

Don,
Absolutely beautiful poem and reminder. And here too I am reminded about gratitude. Gratitude for all of those things taking place outside of my awareness, and when I am reminded by wise words such as these, I reflect in humble gratitude that they are occurring even when my mind is elsewhere.

Peace, joy and Love of Spirit flowing to you and through you always.
