Shannon posted this one and I thought it worthy of not just linking to, which I am, but also reproducing here . . .
“I will not die and unlived life
I will not live in FEAR
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me
to make me less afraid
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom
goes on as fruit”
