Crossing the River  – Ally Saunders

Your Heart

Bring me your heart
Unadorned
Unburdened
With past lives and
Worn out feelings

Bring me your true heart
Your joyful heart
Your mournful heart
Your trusting heart

Bring me your fragile heart
Let me tenderly
Lovingly
Stow it away
Throw away the key

Bring me your heart
And I will
Give you mine

Collaboration for Peace – 47

Forward

Why are we backpedaling
While currents of clarity
Still flow at our feet?
How does one drop of impurity
Poison our possibilities?
When are we accountable
For the inevitable,
Witnesses to the destruction?

We are the ripples of hope
On waters, stagnant
The ancient sunlight shimmer
Dancing over shadows
We are the reflections
Of persistent hands of change
And this world did not evolve
Without us

Smoothed Out

d’Verse Poets Pub – Verbify Me

Lillian has challenged us to create a new verb.

Smoothed Out

I’ve been mayonnaised
the bits and pieces of me
swirled and blended
homogenized
until I’m smoothed out
spread flat, sandwiched
between words that comfort
and words that cut
