Teachers

Some
teachers
are like oysters
producing

unique
and
unknown pearls

on intrusion
or
as a reaction

Some
are
jewellers

who
collect
and string

the
most beautiful
into fashion


Others
wear them

round
the neck

showing
them off
to the world

and glitter
in their reflection

Words

on the brink
of your
thoughts

to juggle
with
to caress
with
in your mind

soft sharp
bitter sweet

peopling
your days
haunting
your nights

he said
goodbye

she cried

Why
should I worry
about the end
of the story?



yours
for the taking

theirs
for the making

continuously
ending

endlessly
starting

Words...

Glow

The sun
has set

and yet
in my heart

I
have kept
the warm
bright light

to go
through
the cold
dark night
