* I’ve been compelled to write what I loosely call ‘performance poetry’ lately… They don’t quite translate as words on a screen… but near enough 🙂 Here’s one I wrote last week… xx
My heart is bigger than I thought it was.
It could fill all the space from here to the moon, to the sun, to the stars.
Love is not what I once knew it as…
Those I love are not books in a bookshelf with my allotted space filling, filling, full. Time to move some out; get rid of the ones I don’t read anymore. It’s not like that.
It’s more like replanting the Amazon.
Every time a new tree is planted, the eco-system rejoices.
Every time a new tree is planted, the whole world breathes just a little easier.
Every time a new tree is planted, its roots hold something together.
I have a network of love holding me together.
I am part of many networks of love holding many worlds together.
I am many trees, I bear much fruit.
