Precious

Guard that precious heart
That precious body and mind
It is not infinite as the world
Give it to the family and self
That is enough
Give it just to the house plants
The English ivy and pothos
That is enough
Give it to the grain of cornbread crumb
the thread and the pebble
That is enough.
Give it to this moment
and the next
That is enough.
Not infinite.
