Whimsy


Below the oak
Beyond the stream
We'll find the time
To pause & dream

Tapestry

Tapestry 

We exist as threads
Intricately woven
Between the then and now

Memories like silk
Through the eye of the needle
Embroidered emotions

Braided as bandage
Quilting our scars
Stitched together

Through that which connects us
A web of emotion
Colourful commonalities

Joy, pain
Love, loss 
Lust, envy 

It is in our most tender moments
Our most intimate whispers
Our most frightening desires

Where we find the courage
To adorn ourselves
In the lives we have created

Where our mistakes are made art
Our regrets turn to poetry
And our shame is silenced

A Vote For Fairness

We all want the same thing
Government
Determines
Who deserves it
Fairness and equality
Should not be regarded as weak
Nor should the ability
To carry on a mature and rational debate
Be considered a hindrance.
When we make a conscience choice 
To turn away from these conversations
And take the side of force
We choose conflict
Thinking as long as we stand at the side of power
The choice is ours alone.
