On Being Needy/Needed
Dreamed and subsequently written in February 2002 by Roswila [aka: Patricia Kelly]
She is merry as she offers me
a serving of her strawberry shortcake.
"I can give you the simple recipe
Afraid I've taken too much from her
She is now only a head speaking
I lean down but can barely
"God told me to give as much
Thinking about this dream--of which this poem is almost an exact transcript--pulls me into an intense inner eddy. I wind around and around, exploring the issues of being needy, being needed, and then just where are the limits of helping another person.
By the way, the "other" woman in this dream is an actual minister I knew at the time of the dream.
'til next time, keep dreaming,
