poem- kind light November 29, 2013

She is full

of dark visions.

She wears

prickly armour,

of protruding spikes .

She shows a

black expression

daring you to come closer

but you step

into her darkness,

with a candle of consideration

share her visions

and show her

what kindness looks like.



(For Robin, just one of my many amazing teacher colleagues).
