Out for a Sail

Like sailors flying over waves
of emotion and other liquid dramas
Compassion and empathy…
compatriots in many circles
Rode aloft the sleeve
of unconditional love
Stiff breezes flapping the hair
and their cheeks with brisk splashes of reality

Anger’s Mirror

Looking deeply in the eyes of anger
I see myself mirrored there
with empathy
I’ve walked there
with fearful posture
I’ve treaded there
Here, I am there
And I am immersed
in Love
