Artist's Description

The Prevailing Heart

The Prevailing Heart…
Seeks out the soul’s greatest chance
To begin where no ground
Could ever have thought hope
However bold would stand and speak

The Prevailing Heart…
Knew of no one
Before an undiscovered dawn
When an unspeakable frost, glistening
Slid under verdant blades of grass

The Prevailing Heart…
Only echoed it’s spirit
Afraid of finding it’s end
In the dust of a power
It couldn’t define or conquer

The Prevailing Heart…
Once a seed
Became a torrent
Of rushing wind, of a river mighty
And took over the bright soul of one so young

The Prevailing Heart…
Won the jagged course
With the sword of a sweet spirit
A battle only imagined
Becoming real when it mattered most.
Doug Gustafson
