The Chords of my Heart


The Chords of my Heart From the back roads of my mind; You tempt my heart to dance again. You smiled, and said hello, In the middle of nowhere. And between the dark and the light, The warmth of your touch – Everything you are is new to me; One more time; The chords of my heart whisper. Oh those blue eyes; Hope in a starry night.   – Artwork: Henry Asencio   Continue reading The Chords of my Heart

Beyond the Sea
