How was it love
When
I rarely
Put myself in your path
To encounter
The warmth
That
Radiated
From
The glow
Of
Your presence

How was it love
When
Without
My awareness
Your wholeness
Became broken
And
I
In oblivion
Failed to sense
That
You
Breathe
No more

How was it love
When
I lost you
Never knowing
That
You
Ceased to cling
To this world
As
It raced
Through its orbit
Around
A star
Whose brightness
Could not
Outshine
You

Walking
On
The shady side of the street
Cools me
As
The clip of my stride
Quickens
Pumping
Blood
Through
My body
At
A rate
That
Would cause
Other liquids
To boil

While
The leaves
Of
Canopying branches
Fan
My head
As
They are stirred
By
The same breezes
That
Dance
Between
My thoughts

We must
Hold on
To
Optimism
Even
When
Hurdles are erected
Along
The path

That
Routes
Us
To
The fulfillment
Of
Our
Individual destinies
Which
Are
All
Linked
By
A collective desire
To
Succeed

Nature’s bells
Ring
Drawing
Our attention
To
The awakening
Of
The world
From
Its slumber


As
A new season
Arrives
To cast colour
Up on
What
Lay
Hidden
But
Now
Bursts forth
With
Blue brightness
As
Each chime
Spreads
The news
Of
Change

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
Since
The starting line
When
The first trigger
Prompted us
To spring forward
With actions
To change
The world
Around
Our bodies


And
The bodies
With
Which
We will collide
As we travel
Between
Life’s challenges
Boldly
Conquering obstacles
With
The knowledge
We have collected
In preparation
For
Our individual journeys

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
And
I am confident
The great distances ahead
Will
Never
Be crossed
Alone
Because
Even in separation
We
Are
Together

My life
Is
A vapour
That has willed me
From
The moment of my birth
When
The light of the world
Seeped
Through
The calm comfort
Cradling me
And
Seduced me
To follow it

In to
This fractured place
That changes
As
I grow
Up and in and outward
Obtaining new perspectives
Which
Are
Temporary
Fleeting
And
Quickly
Passing away
Before
I have had my fill
Of
Whimsical enjoyment
To
Render me breathless

My life
Is
A vapour
Unable to settle
And
Become
Cemented
Because
It is necessary
For
Awakened spirits
To
Roam
Free

Learning
To tie my shoelaces
Was
One of the most difficult things
I have had to learn

Measuring
The right amount
Of
Lace
To make a bow

Learning
How
To precisely twist the lace
To prevent a knot
That would take longer
To undo
Than it did to make

Or

Tying them
Tight enough
To avoid
Tangling myself
In loosened laces
And
Tripping
Falling headfirst
Due to my haste
To complete
The task

Since
I have learned
To tie my shoelaces
The simplicity of it
Makes me wonder
Why
It had been
Difficult
To learn

Because

Loving you
Was not learned
It came
Simply
Without thought
Without trial
And
Its only difficulty
Is trying
To measure it
In adequate portions
So it will never
Run out
