1 (i)

This poem is naked.
The words, at the edge
of the paper, are dressed in
nothing but their own shadows,
tender and fragile, and yet,
bearing the strength of  its private pain.
This poem is seductive in its
vulnerability.

This poem is seductive
in its vulnerability
tender and fragile,
it bear my pain

1 (iii)

This poem is the shadow of words
at the edge of the page, writing,
the pen attempts to dress them
but they remain naked and fragile

2.
This poem is a two-way portal
between the traditional
and the contemporary,
a passage to and from
numberless states and stories.

**

3.

This poem is a flashback,

 a portal to the past,

 a river stone content

and patiently watching

 the world from the water.

This poem is dependable

and enduring,

faithful as my bones,

 indestructible as my love

**

 4.

this poem is a ruin 
or maybe a rune 
or both 
or neither
this poem is not just a pile of stones 
it is a repository for a thousand stories.

**

5.

This poem is a stitch
that will unravel it all.

**

6.

This poem is a work in progress,

perpetually evolving, adapting,

refining, improving and enhancing.

This poem is courageous in change.

Its possibilities are endless.
