THE PROCESS OF FREEDOM
Which are the thoughts that free you?
And which are those imprisoning you?
Which ones devour your waking hours?
And which new ones are you eating?
~~~~~ ~ ~~~~~
The germ for this can be found at Freedom – A Condition Of The Human heart.
He became her lover
She became his love
The brighter the light
The blacker the darkness
She ordered her various selves
To quieten down, line up and let
Each one take its turn at the mic
While the others listened politely
His mind and body were discovered
During her ongoing extensive search
For objects that might at some point
Disastrously impact with her planet
Those who put
The ‘big’ in bigotry
Are those who keep
The ‘small’ in small-minded
HOW TRUE LOVE WORKS
As I send you now a piece of my heart
Sit a moment in this stillness to know
We are all but a part of a greater Heart
Whatever we give away will soon regrow
MARY OLIVER: IN MEMORIAM
Flesh and bone may decay
Her words, all the thoughts
All the feelings they evoke
Shall remain to nourish us
