Destiny

sunlit-grasses

Solo, she is only ice,

Charlatan in paradise;

When she lets the Light shine in,

Then her glory can begin.

Glowstick

Yellow Diamond Lily

Glowstick gleam in deepest dark, incandescence blooming bright;

Tube and charge which cause the spark must be bent to make it light.

So your splendour glimmers best when life’s pressures twist your frame;

Bow with poise to each new test – darkness craves a brilliant flame.

Ready, Set, Grow

hoarfrosted grass

Where tears met the fog,

Your armour grew –

Negligee wrapping

Pain in more palatable form,

Deflecting eyes from

Bones brittle as death.

If you allow the Light

To strip you naked

(Sinews and seams

Bruised and bare)

Your genuine

Can grow.
