Comments about Carolyn Brunelle
A Little Light
For everything a reason
and a season under the sun;
every puzzle has its answer
that is not uniquely our own.
Nothing remains a mystery
in the light of life's experience,
or hurts like the awareness
we cannot live it over again.
Yet nothing is ever lost if we
pass such wisdom to one another;
no life lived in vain, that sheds
light on the path for a brother.
Brave New Spirits
Small little minds follow someone else's rules
in devotion to minutia, the favored tools
of perfectly controlled order, all just so so;
a strangulation of spirit and life's natural flow.
Asked not to think, but merely to conform,
how refreshing and beyond the norm
when brave new spirits dare to be free
of what others say they should be.
