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

Inspired by the women who have been my strongest supporters during the past three years and who will be with me every day for the rest of my life because of the friendships they planted in my heart.

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

Droplets of water
Hold
Both
Light and dark
As
They land
From
Falling

Entering
A world of struggle
Where
They join forces
Either
Muddying
The waters
To stifle
Our attempts
At
Opening
Streams of clarity
Or
Cleansing
Each breath
Of
Life’s air
As
We run
Dodging
Raindrops

Love
Ignited
By
Two souls
Burns brighter
More steadfast
And
Deeper
Than
Platonic love
Brotherly love
Or
Motherly love

Love
Ignited
By
Two souls
Endures
Eternity

Buttoned…

Lips
Keep secrets
Swearing
Never to repeat
What was shared
To lighten the burdens
Life lodges
Deeply within our souls

Pockets
Hold treasures
Pushing
Against seams
As if plotting
To escape
The curiosity
That lives in small fingers

Coats
Store warmth
Shutting out
Cold
Stirred by stinging winds
As
Days grow short
And
The sun seeks rest
Under dusk’s early arrival

Blouses
Throw shadows
Hinting
At the softness
Of
Feminine curves
That lay
Beneath the filmy shield
Of
Silken fabric

Holes
Close openings
Protecting
Precious places
Ensuring privacy
As long as
They remain
Securely buttoned
