Conundrum
Audacious vulnerability or
Vulnerable audacity
which forms the needed human capacity?
one parades as an open door
Other humbly outstretched on the floor
one says yes as suits the taste
Other's yes seems like a waste
one walks a thousand miles to show
commitment forged in the will to go
Other hides herslef in the cloak of friend
embracing the beginning in apparent end

This is one I wrote on VACATION. I still am not sure what it all means.

any thoughts here?

That's pretty deep for a vacation poem, JD....let it simmer for awhile.

sounds like the shades of paradox found in christian community....

...but that is probably me receiving it more as a "mirror" than a "window"...

...really good - great flow and wonderful imagery

The "Yes as suits the taste" makes me think of self preservation vs. radical abandonment of self to others. Yet not clearly so because it seems one character gives themself to friendship, while another gives themself to the labor. Perhaps this is the conundrum. One goes, one waits in a friend. One a laboror, one a watchmen.

Give us a little help here oh wise one.

i am clearly not in control of this poetry here--- it's meaning is releasing. . . . . . . i tend to side with vulnerable audacity though. the root of the word vulnerable means "wound."
