Come unstuck

When you go
where you’ve never
been,
you’ll see and
feel things
you’ve never
seen
nor felt –
both
within and
without.

New Year

When the new
year comes
there are lots
of
talk about
new year
resolutions
wishes
hopes
dreams.

My hope for
you
is to not
be weighed
down
by weighty
resolutions
to be
uplifted by
hopes
and to
continue to
dream.

My deepest
wish for
you
us
everyone
is that
we
never succumb
to
fear.

Embrace what
the new
year
experiences
life
has in store
for us.

Shine
shine from
inside
shine for
all to see –
shine!

En pointe

Standing on
tippy toes
I try to
see
just that little
bit
higher
on tippy
tippy toes.

Quietly lifting
my heels off
the ground
balancing
controlling
raising
en pointe.

Inevitably
the ball of
the foot
falters
the arch
screams
the heel
slams the
floors.

But I’ll lift
them again
on tippy
tippy toes
rotating
awkwardly
spinning
painfully
until I master
its dynamics
masterful
wonderful
graceful
as a
ballerina.

So I’ll keep
doing it
doing it
practising
falling
again
getting up
again.

All that
pain
to be on tippy
tippy toes
just to see
that little
bit
higher.

Squirm

Squirm
You squirm when
I ask
you
and I assume
you’re
hiding
the truth.

Then you
turn
and ask me
instead –

I squirm
squirm
not because I
was hiding the
truth
but because I
was holding
it back
afraid of what
you’ll
think
of me.

Afraid you’ll
reject
me.

Then I
understood:
and I
promise,
I will not
hurt
harm
reject
you.

Blind

They told me
I’d be
blind
tomorrow –
for the first
time
today
I saw the
blueness of the
sky
greenness of the
grass
each blade of
leaf
waving in the
sun
flowers blooming
yellow
red
blue
smiles and frowns
eyes glistening.

I saw love
touched
hate
punched.

I saw I did
nothing to add
to one
nothing to stop
the other.

Will we only
see
when we’re told
we’ll no longer
see?

If so,
then let me tell
you
we’re all going
blind.

Radiate

In the
darkness
I whisper
a little cry
for help
a prayer
a benediction
to be
saved.

Then someone
– just one –
but still
someone
brought with
them a
candle
of hope
of love;
no sleigh
no reindeers
no Santa,
but more than
that,
they brought
light.

So light
that
candle
the one candle
everyone has
within themselves
the one you
have within
yourself
your soul
your heart
because it
may just
save
someone.

Fractals

The snow fell
from so high
up in the
sky
all that way
down
only to
melt
in my gloved
hands.

What was the
purpose of it
all?

But no, snow
you have
not
lived in
vain –
tiny speck as you
were
snowflake
you have
given
me
joy
in no
measurable terms.
