Tamara Willems

forever mapping…

When one’s first instinct
always
is to hide

the origins of which
are
so deeply
sown

forever mapping
the ways
we inhabit
the
world

much importance is put
on the spaces
of our own making
safety as it were, in familiar surroundings

fences and
gates

comfort in knowing, in trusting
impermanence
over shamefaced
failings

when one is not
or can not
or shall

not

it’s protectionism
I suppose,
isn’t it

there is great value in quiet things
in spaces
that are green
in a savouring of simple
understanding

a thankfulness

and when the light falls
just so

the tenderness one feels
in finding

one very small  
cocoon ♥
