"stay open"

to Fiona

when you close down,you close/down
austerity shrinks possibilities
Stoicism is Martyrdom Lite
This is a world of expansion
This is a world of Seasons
Winter cold gives way to Spring
Every bird knows this/and sings!
Trees adopt new coats of green
(we can(at least)learn from them
And when we doubt,we fall from grace
Even if no safety net/we roll through space
on a burning rock with a singular sun
How delicate! How fragile!We come
into this world as a garden and a gift
Accept it.Dance with it.Stay open
Like a parachute..
