So fellow travelers, one of those pieces that has been waiting in the wings came together this rainy afternoon while editing a mediocre photo.
The monster came
I turned to face It
Deep in those cavernous eyes lay
an aching chasm of souless void
Exhausted and resolute I offer mine
An eternity passes in an instant
as I let go
shredded into a thousand pieces
Still I remain and now
there is much more of me
I am here
e v e r y w h e r e
I am lighter
free to fly on the wind
nest with birds
sing cicada songs
and carry dandelion puff wishes
to the listening ears of Heaven
In the process of recovering from a prolonged period of unsettling and stressful situations, my current focus has been on relinquishing the struggle against what is. This is not to say I am willing to accept anything which counters my core values. It means I realize no amount of resistance is going to change certain circumstances. Moving forward requires me to process the emotions embedded in these experiences so I can find new balance points. Surrendering to the depth of feeling felt like coming apart and yet created a sensation of spacious grace making it easier to stop struggling and regain my self awareness. Time to set a few wishes free.
Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
