Emotional Associations - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore
A child burns her hand on the stove
and a fear of fire begins.
In a tender moment, a hand is slapped
and a fear of love begins.
Our emotional associations
and reflections run deep.
Heart breathes beneath all our associations
like a soft sandy bottom waiting underwater.
Try to still our associations
till we are as transparent as a calm lake.
When still enough and clear enough
others can also see through
to our bottom.
It makes love possible again.
So stay with our feelings long enough
till the ripples settle.
