The heart’s geography

© 2013 Anne Campagnet-Reed

How well can you claim to know

the geography of the heart?

You’ve explored it many times

on casual wanderings,

study tours

and even planned vacations—

and each time you add features

to your map, based on

discoveries made that trip.

You think you know

the lay of the land

well enough to lead tours.

But every visitor

makes clear to you

that there are regions

you have never seen:

treacherous rocks

or serene pools;

underground caverns

that the locals

tell no one
