I surrender and undulate with the waves carrying me to far shores, sailing freely, feeling no direction.
Pointed towards the unknown of…. Whales spout, dolphins leap, fishes fly past my smile as I am carried into the depths.
The depths of lives lived, the depths of lives shared and the depths of lives lost.
I pine for those I have lost. Lost to fights, lost to another, lost to lies, lost to death.
I am alive. here and now.
Carried by the tides that bind me, I coast for a time, seeing reflections, showing circumstance, demonstrating strength.
Carried high, so sight is clear and extensive. Examine the situation and be fluid, like the ocean, not holding on, just allowing and flowing. Becoming what is necessary to survive in this life.
Tonight will reveal all we know by the firelight of truth.
Statuary becomes alive, portraying scenarios we used to live, alabaster cracks showing flaws of thought.
Changed under stress, sickness and loss, kiss them goodbye forever I am through.
Gliding into the tunnel of revelations, read the writings on the wall. Stepping onto the bridge erected between forgiveness and sanctuary. The bridge toll is the stories that can’t be let go of.
There is only one way forward.
Now is it.
Find courage to forgive and move forward, shedding that old skin, breathe deep and go.
Stepping onto the planks that suspend the darkness within, holding onto the frayed ropes that are tied to willow trees, bending and swaying under the reluctance in our bones.
Careful not to falter or slip, the fall is eternal. I’ll wait on the other side of forgiveness, ready for renewal.
Take me down the loving path into your heart, shine a light onto the pain never forgotten, serve it on a platter and throw it against the wall. Free from it now.
Turning around and walking away from that. Into the summer sun, appearing on the shores of first delight,
toss the ball and run into the surf,
I am free.
