Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

I Play Well

but not with others.
Bad marks without the label
giving me permission to
attract the compassion and
grace those with a diagnosis
receive.

Do hedgehogs, porcupines,
roses, and blackberries
come to your mind?

I saw a movie called I Am. 
It interlaced the questions -
what's wrong with our world
with what's right with our world.
The end answer came trailing
across the screen - I AM! I wanted
to read - You Are! I paraphrased
it to fit my Beloved Bride status.
The Great I Am says I am.
He's never been afraid of thorns.
