Confession And Plea

CONFESSION AND PLEA

I confess
I am lost
Please help me

Am I here to teach?
Or else to learn?
Maybe both?

I confess
I am lost
Please help me

Must we always be acting
From our wounded places?
Or first be acting to heal?

I confess
I am lost
Please help me

It is clear you are lost too
Stop being a smartarse
Just be a child, be kind

Two Roads

TWO ROADS

While Teaching
Is a sacred calling

An opening
An awakening
An endless blessing

This (Mis)education
Better called Schooling

Is demonic
Is a lifelong blight
Is a shackle and a curse

W(h)iles: Shadorma

W(H)ILES

While meanwhile
As ever they are
Preaching to
The choir
While for though they appear full
Their pews are empty

Out Of Line: Four By Six

OUT OF LINE

Borne here upon some wind
Blown free from ancestry
With offspring free of flesh
Unless they bring their own

Guides And Wise Ones (19a)

GUIDES AND WISE ONES

Ancient truths
Yet newly minted
Still needful
And therefore
Spirit sets sail once again
Fresh canvas, same wind

The Magical Act

THE MAGICAL ACT

Teaching is love
Which is to give
…..the space to breathe
To feed
…..asking nothing in return

Teach me
Love me
Teach me to love
…..and teach in my turn
Paying back to the spirit of man

Nothink

NOTHINK

Our brothers
And sisters
Took turns
Attacking us

To teach us
There is
Nothink
To defend

Reliance

RELIANCE

Seeking for guidance
Found a voice not an echo
A good place to start

Mr Martin

MR MARTIN

At times I envision us
Preachers, side by side
Restating the obvious

In the forlorn hope
Our words might reach
Ears beyond the choir

Teaching, Learning And Intuition

TEACHING, LEARNING AND INTUITION

You asked me last Thursday, or as I recall it
To “Please e-mail me with a gentle reminder”

Yet, for reasons not really worth recounting
It has taken me a couple of days to do this

And this has allowed me to pad out my e-mail
With a couple of videos I think will interest you

Plus an article on the castration of education
So clearly the delay was in some way important
