Tell Your Love

Like water off a ducks back,
or water dribbling down a child’s chin,
our competence and resilience
are integral to our being
and cannot be separated from each other,
nor from our continual learning.

This stuff we are made from –
dirt, joy, unknowing, mess, forgiveness –
this is what we live with.
There is nothing ‘out there’,
not even the absence of these things.

This time we are living in –
cluttered with our mistakes and delusions –
is the time for telling our love.
Don’t let that thought you tripped over,
nor that gaping wound you made,
stop you from being in love.

(for Meredith who tells her love daily, Simon Williams 24.9.2012)
