During Jake Millar’s uplifting and intimate memorial (KRC, November 29th) in Christchurch last week, part of a poem, The Cosmic Dancer by John Roedel was read out and shared with all those present in the Church and on the livestream.
“… be desperate to live and to
love a little bit recklessly,
caution is a luxury
for those who have
endless days to be patient
– we don’t
– everything is temporary …”
We’ll post the full version next week – it’s a reminder to all of us …
“… it’s all about time
– that’s what makes
it such an adventure …”
I hadn’t come across the poet, John Roedel – a Facebook blogger and, in his own words:
John Roedel – Poet, Writer, Cosmic, Storyteller, Terrible Dancer. Facebook conversationalist – with the Divine “Hey God. Hey John” and a new book – which I’ve just ordered “Remedy. The Adventures of a Cowardly Boy & His Heart That Loved Him So.”
And check out his first book “Any Given Someday”.
