Poety instead?

I have so much fabric, time to sew and loads of ideas but I just can’t seem to get it together today to do anything! This does happen a bit, does it happen to you?

I have decided to share my favourite poem with you instead.

Who?

I am not

that which you think I am.

I  plan

    hate

    love

    need

    cry

    laugh

All that anyone does.

I feel

    gentle

    giving

    wanting

    strength

    change – at a pace I cannot control.

Do not make me be

that which I think you think I am

for I am never that.

Learn me       anew

every moment.

Or know me not at all

                                         Lynemore Dover

 

I first discovered this poem many many years ago when I was in the midst of my turbulent, frenzied early twenties. It resonated with me then and still resonates all these years later, in my not so turbulent 40’s…. well 40!!

Do you have a special poem or phrase, one that has meaning for you?
