"Some women are
lost in the fire.
Some women are
built from it."
"The future does not need religion, politics, nor even need money~Future need souls, minds, passion and love."
"I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up
I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go
but I am here to learn."
"…but no, you’re not diminished by shadows.
They’re your sincerity."
Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled —
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even
to float a little
above this difficult world.
I want to believe I am looking
into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing —
that the light is everything — that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and fading. And I do.
