Let go, let in, let go again…
the waves coming to the shore can be loved
but not grabbed.
Trusting the next waves to come in
teeming with life
filling the shore’s cupback up again…
this is the practice
of living and breathing with love.
To not control another
or even yourself.
To not feel tasked with the undertaking
of making anything happen
So love flows…
It ebbs and it goes
And this sense of timing
of mining every moment
is the only thing you can really hold.
Fictitious, time is a tease,
flirting with those who chase it
knowing its virtue,
nodding to its value.
Powerful Divine timings
flow like seas unkept
into hair unkempt
on the heads of those
who choose the bliss-mess stirrings.
Those who wait for the waves
and dive IN.
Those who choose to learn,
heal and grow,
even with each downturn and upswing
overrunning all that once was kept kosher.
And so it is love has its way with us
which, when chosen
gifts us so much more
than unattainable heartaches,
and the shakiness of the unknown. ❤

I just came back from a morning walk and read your beautiful poem a couple of times. It has helped me settle back into my body without judgement, to feel the ebb and flow of rising feelings without story or fear attached, to let myself be. Thank you.
OH wow, I’m so glad to feel how it landed in you and supported you… thank you so much for sharing! ❤
