Song 50

 How long does it take to become a stranger to each other?

How long for the heart
To pause, shrink back, retreat?

Oh my Love
Let
Us
Trust
The
Night

Let us welcome

The
Venom
Of
Risk

Let us enter
The circle of our deepest fear

Let it become

Ally
&
Guide

Let fingers entwine

Let
Steel

A
B
I
D
E

From
The
Fierceness
Of
Our
Love

Let us not shrink back

2/2/13

Whakapapa: origins are in a ‘speaking’ from the Self: ‘how long does it take to become a stranger to each other: for the heart to pause, shrink back, retreat’ (25/1/13). Also influenced by a ‘saying’ from the Self: ‘Sounds like your minuses outweigh your steel.’ (23/1/13) In the healing traditions ‘venom’ (or poison), if used correctly, has powerful curative qualities. The ‘bite of risk’ heals. 

What we fear most is often what we desire most: the desire to be truly ‘seen’ and passionately loved, just as we are.

There is a fierce & tender fire in such loving.
