Kudos

KUDOS

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

Coupling And Decoupling

COUPLING AND DECOUPLING

Power she had in mind, in body too
He also had his power, duly exerted
And weaknesses (carefully disguised)

They once so hip, but now replaced
Following their gradual disrobement
As together all’s well that ends well

A Safe Harbour

A SAFE HARBOUR

When you are alone
You may say, “I am OK”
And no one mocks you

But if that’s still not the case
Your journey’s not yet over

O To Be As Water

Crashing
…..
…..
O TO BE AS WATER

Look see the wave crash
Listen to the mighty roar
Watch the droplets fly
Smashed to smithereens and yet
The ocean repairs itself

Self-reliance

SELF-RELIANCE

Relied on them
Then discovered they are crooked
Must have your own back

Strength

STRENGTH

The weak cannot become strong
By struggling they only make themselves weaker
The strong are eternally strong
They recognise their weakness

Woman Of The Sea

WOMAN OF THE SEA

Sail on then, my lady, whatever befall you
Bent but unbroken, unbowed by the squall
Weatherbeaten cheeks, chiselled and carved
By years of wild wind and waters spent defining
Your signature inner diamonds set shining in
Spangles of teardrops and sparkling laughter

Sail on then, till that far harbour find you
Enfold you in its loving arms once again
No more call to brave the callous blast
Home the weary traveller, home at last

Sensei

SENSEI

Mature and masterful
Clarity and honesty, clear-eyed
Strength, but not without a certain fragility
Acceptance, but not without a certain bitterness
