DIVE

dive

“dive for dreams” – E.E. Cummings

dive for dreams

or a slogan may topple you

(trees are their roots

and wind is wind)

 

trust your heart

if the seas catch fire

(and live by love

though the stars walk backward)

 

honour the past

but welcome the future

(and dance your death

away at this wedding)

 

never mind a world

with its villains or heroes

(for god likes girls

and tomorrow and the earth)

 

 

Plate by Theo Kleynhans
