The Call: I Am/Christine

Today we are bringing you a Call and Response from Christine/Brave and Reckless and Chuck/The Reluctant Poet.  The line in Christine’s poem “Memories captured in amber” inspired the Reluctant Poet to write about his own memories in amber.


I am

Fragments of poetry

Wisps of dreams

Drifting musical notes

Memories captured in amber

Metal Dragons

Origami Cranes

Blood orange kisses

Words of strength

Etched in ink on skin


Poet’s soul

Woman’s heart

Lover’s passion

Witch’s spirit

Shield Maiden’s battle cry

Pieces of me, all


I drink the moon

Hear my own music in my veins

Listen to all the women I am

Who demand to be

Made visible

Made whole


Who tell me that I am

Done apologizing

Done containing

My darkness

My fierceness

My light

To make others comfortable


I am

Done whispering
