Michael Leunig pt. 2

Had not heard of Michael Leunig before I posted yesterday, found out that he's an Australian artist/poet/cartoonist - and another poem of his showed up on my facebook page today - enjoy!

Love and fear / Michael Leunig

There are only two feelings, Love and fear:
There are only two languages, Love and fear:
There are only two activities, Love and fear:
There are only two motives, two procedures,
two frameworks, two results, Love and fear,
Love and fear.

If you're enjoying these you will LOVE his art - his cartoons are wonderful:

this is my prayer today

love, not fear

actually, if you remove the comma, it alters the reading slightly

love not fear

whichever way you look at it, the outcome would be similar :)

LOVE the poem/prayer too - what a gift, both within you and for me - thank you so much!
