Nurturing hope...


My foolish desire
to embrace the whole world
in the warmth of my being
most often goes rolling down
as a vehicle that lost its brakes

the love i have for the world
often turns into a roller-coaster ride
making me dizzy in frenzied madness
my innards fleeing from within

i still nurture hope!

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
