Bold

BOLD

Opening oneself
Gives more texture to the world
Turns heads and wins hearts

Secret Love

SECRET LOVE

Let us
Forever
Take care
What we reveal
Until
Breath held
We take the plunge

If you try to run off
Expect misadventures
Heed that still small voice
You have a job to do

Take Your Partner (27b)

TAKE YOUR PARTNER

Let us dance
Woman to woman
Will you lead
Or shall I?
We’ll brave their less than pure jibes
Tend one another

No Victims Here (17a)

NO VICTIMS HERE

Never mind
The finger-pointing
At others
Circumstance
Take responsibility
Take charge, take the wheel

One Valiant Victim

ONE VALIANT VICTIM

Are we not all the one
For whom the bell tolls
While currently being
If we care so to be also
The one with the balls?

Open Ended

OPEN ENDED

You are invited to take the air
On wings for too long trussed
(Not the best sort of trust)
So switch craving to braving
Half the sky is already yours
The other half yours to explore

Fearspawn

FEARSPAWN

Many people believe
(Having been taught so)
That love and hatred are opposites

But in my experience this is not correct
The true opposite of love is fear

Fear is the ground
From which hatred grows

Love opens us up
Fear closes us down

We no longer see
So we imagine

And hate what
We think we see

To overcome our hatred
We must first overcome our fear
Of our fellows and of ourselves

Fearless … or timid?
She loves me … she loves me not
Her favourite game

Kudos

KUDOS

Your gentle courage
An example to us all
Who strive day by day
