Woody (of Toy Story 4)

Standing by my friend makes us strong to the end despite a day’s wayward quirks – Loyalty makes life work   Never turning my back on a companion’s lack keeps us together – Commitment is a joyful tether   Answering the call of alarm without regard for hurt or harm fosters solidarity – Helpfulness creates […]

Whisperer

The Wind whispers, sometimes softly, sometimes loudly.   Sometimes She pushes me along. Sometimes She pushes me back.   She caresses me with a gentle warm breeze. She throttles me with a blustery cold gust.   To hear Her word, I must listen, for I know not from whence She came, or where She goes. […]

Threadbare

Alas, our tapestry is ripped; but, we’re not irreparable. Woven and inseparable, part of the cloth, we can’t be snipped.   Fashion glorifies the rend, the world marginalizes tears.

It’s continuous and… relentless to entice.   In real-time engaged, are we what’s happening? Thus we become caged – unheard with no opening.   Our lives are thus […]

Word

To hear, I must listen, to listen, I must be all in. I labor to leave the womb, I suffer to heal the wound.   As the cosmos is revolving, the word is evolving. With others, in gestation, I embrace the mutation.   My time is not terminal. My space is real liminal. I live […]

Boundaries

“Just cuz”is rarely for a just cause = like I have to wait ‘just cuz’ your late.   Of course, it could be for good reason – someone else needed your attention. However, had you left earlier I would not have been surlier   I am not suggesting you’re bad; and I certainly should not […]
