resistance is subtle

surprising in it’s variations

all of them


supporting each other

resistance strengthens

muscles, bones, spirit

hear all sides

raise your compassion

show your love

resistance breeds connections

deep running

quiet or loud

hold it in your heart

time to struggle from the seed




Round and Round

gathered up so close

tightly wound

pressed against future’s dream

surprised to be found

waiting unknowingly for the dance

difficult steps with feet firmly bound

ache of a strange color fills

taking up space across wet ground

something breaks

distantly ringing empty sound

patience heart extended

gently gathering pieces by the pound
