Walking on Ice

sunrise or sunset?

conference of birds

or diverse gathering?


early morning gathering

or is it an evening stroll

on frozen ice

for a refreshing dip

and chill-out time?


no quarrelling,

some flapping and fluttering

acrobatic posing

skating on thin ice

just sharing of space

from a safe distance of the ‘stranger’

a congregating of same.


is it fear of the ‘other’?

the need for security?

or not daring

to step out of comfort zone?


life together in a diverse community

is like

walking on ice…as the sun rises…
