Encrustations of yesterdays
Patterns of habits
Slowly suffocate, while
Constant repetition forms
Holograms of security
Delusions of living, cloistered
In the monastery of fear
Love’s intruding invasion
Penetrates confined forebodings
Disrupting, sabotaging
Habits of reptilian tenacity
Love’s disturbing grace
Shaking scared shibboleths
With careless disregard
The teasing invitation
Of transformation
The tantalising hope
Of difference
Newness birthed in
Love’s explosion
Of potential possibilities
Love’s invitation
To risk, to rise
To resurrect the soul
To shed cosseted security
To shout in affirmation
This is life, my only life

The gift of all I am
