What if I opened my heart
With both hands

And offered to let you read my soul?

Would you?

Not a jacket blurb
Or polished introduction

But the un-proofed,

Me splayed across the page

Every word

For you to read.

Would you?

    Excellent question… it is hard to b ‘real’… and bare our souls, spirits and selves with others. It brings a new name to vulnerability.


  2. smiles… i’m not quite sure if i would be ready for the unedited version of my soul myself.. needs much trust to open up to someone completely.. and for the other a bit of courage to read as well…


  3. I would certainly read yours and would love every word. So glad you didn’t ask if I would let anyone else read me–that’s a tougher question and harder to do. But you’ve got me thinking and that’s really…good. Thank you Cindee.

    yes, yes, yes–a work in progress. Aren’t we all? And there’s grace for each new day.
    nice to ‘meet’ you, Cindee. Maybe some day?
