Three Course Meal

frozen mango tango


pain steals in soft

frozen fangs

tempted by exposed underbelly

plated appetizer


 pearly whites gnaw


savour slow the flesh of broken hearts

 main course destruction


faith foamed and frothed


redeems gnashed, broken ingredients

  becomes sweet dessert




Courage stands when winds deface,

Courage keeps strong roots in place;

Courage dares to hope for more

When circumstances hiss and roar.

At times of pressure, Courage kneels,

At times of trouble, Courage feels;

For Courage knows it holds the keys

To feed a starving world –

Its seeds.
