It Takes Courage

Oddly enough, this next poem ties with the last post very well. Certain of the comments in the last post were about courage being more important than brilliance in the work.

I am heading out to a New Year's Dance shortly and I must cut short all the fancy stuff. Here's the poem.

It Takes Courage

If I was brave, man,
I would stand here as naked
as the day, so bright
and clear that you would
need shades of your own to stop
the glare. I don't have
that kind of courage.
I have enough love for you
to wish for it, though.

  1. what a lovely poem to start off 2011.
    perhaps it is a harbinger of how you will dance in this new year?
    just an irreverent little thought...
    a wonderful grand new year to you!!

  2. and yet you do
    i see your brillance
    from way down here
    when i close my eyes...
