“Rage is a powerful energy that with diligent practice can be transformed into fierce compassion. However much we disagree with our enemies, our task is to identify with them. They too feel justified in their point of view.”

PATIENCE

By Lisa Gorton

Stairs that rise to unused rooms, their amber afternoons:

hours that bear the weight – mahogany as patience –

of a bed made smooth and leather-bound books sequestered

like shoes queuing – the wrong way – to step out.
