SUFFICIENCY

SUFFICIENCY

Is it more than two
The number of legs required
Just to stand upright?

LIMBO

LIMBO

Betrayal slays us
Regaining trust is scary
Time is all we have

LEST …

LEST …

Less acting
More doing

Less thinking
More being

Lest …

AFRAID OF NOTHING

AFRAID OF NOTHING

There is always nothing
To be afraid of – yet
Some are afraid of it
To be sure, to be sure

FORTITUDE

FORTITUDE

Let us be alone
And comfort one another
What else do we have?

BEYOND THE WIND

BEYOND THE WIND

Whichever way the wind blows
Frank Herbert reminded us
Those many “years” ago now
Fear is the mind-killer

LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE

LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE

That is not true love
Which cowers beneath some mask
But no more than fear

PAIN

PAIN

“Why is it so hard for some to show and others to see?”

Perhaps it is the fear of pain.

It is widely believed that the opposite of love is hatred, but closer examination reveals that the true opposite of Love is Fear; hatred always has its roots in Fear.

Fear makes us close up and deny; Love invites us to open and share.

Perhaps it is only when we readmit Love that the healing of the pain can begin.

SHORE THING

SHORE THING

Wary of recklessness
In thrall to fear of risk

Unwilling to abandon
The certainty of shore

Unsure of uncertainty
One will not travel far

That is the one thing
One may be sure of

ATTAINMENT

ATTAINMENT

Attaining a peak
One has a splendid view of
All the peaks beyond
