Velvet Poetry

— Lesa Medley

Velvet poetry
with its
soft, smooth
graceful
and gently
rounded edges;
heals us
through hard times,
helps us
express ourselves
and enables us to
see the world around us;

Cactus poetry
with its
harsh, raw
penetrating
and sharply
protruding spines;
abruptly jolts us
out of lethargy
and apathy
in order to wake us up,
grab our attention and
perhaps,
move us to action;

There is room enough
and a deep need
for both.
