Clearing the heart

The heart is not a carpet from Arabia

That can be vacuum cleaned or steam washed.

If you want to clean it, categorize

The dirt and prioritize the cleaning process.


Life has not always been a haven of peace,

Neither for man nor for beasts and birds.

The sea lions know it and the dolphins feel it.

The heaving bosom is eye witness

To the tip of the iceberg beneath which

Are the trials and tribulations of life.


The heart endowed with freshness,

Sensuality and rich inventiveness

Provides a liberating image of

The indomitable spirit of man.


All the powers are in the heart,

Driving force par excellence, she rules

She empowers with artistic purity.

He who has a heart has everything.


To keep it richly functional, clear it.

Remove the dirt called jealousy,

Envy, pride, hypocrisy, laziness

And the dizziness of this material world.
