Bound

Poem By ...C Cleverly

Bound in a prison
of my own making
a Christ who's risen
a Christ awakening

once deaf to laughter,
dumb in prayer,
blind to an ever after
already here

a dread of others
healed by the grace of good
remembered brothers
now understood

our mission driven
our goal to be free
the gaoler forgiven
for the gaoler was me.

Desert

An absoluteness shorn by wind.
Yellow sea, isles of yellow rocks;
Free of contradictions.
No walls, portals nor windows,

Rose

Cross rose
Prices rose
People rose
Hunger rose

Madiba

O Madiba! Madiba your ship has finally come to rest
Rest now, now rest, for peace was your bequest.
Humiliated, disgraced, yet in captivity you chose
By embracing your enemy, you learnt and rose.

Time

A breath caught as a drop.
Caught as bejewelling dew
on frozen twigs, cold and dead:
what's breath was water was ice.

Peace

The peace of a mind
No longer maligned
By ire or fire.

Paradox

Paradigm unlocks truths made in paradox,
As softest water wears down the hardest rocks,
Dark-nest wombs child-guide the brightest light,
Made in silence they scream with wild delight
