Connection

Time has brought us forward
We no longer fear our words
Connections made 
Flowing in different directions
Where our words can teach us more
Feeling comfortable together
Each of us contributing
Poetic conversations
There is so much to tell about our lives
About other people, our frightened child within
A lifetime has come before us
There are still lifetimes to be lived
Now that we are connected
There is so much to share
A million stories 
With our beloved friends

The connection has always been there
It was a matter of flipping a switch 
Words are our instrument
They help us scratch the itch
Directions to be navigated
We never know just where we'll go
Like a roller coaster
Going fast and going slow
Secret passages through our lives
With our words we can express
They connect us to this world
So that others we may bless
With other children, of the mind
Our tapestry is formed
Under a blanket of emotion
Together we are warmed


My mom sent me part one this morning with the note below.

"This is your fault, I all of a sudden want to say stuff that I never
thought of saying before. How weird is that?"

We are witnessing the birth of a poet.  I love you mom.
Mama bear Rocks!
