Awash in Possibility


If you don't have a week to be away, do you have a day, an hour or a minute? How do you reconnect and renew? A doodle, a deep breath, a short stroll on a path or sidewalk, a poem?

Allow yourself renewal time today to remember what is possible and what is precious.

Awash in Possibility

I held my breath
and listened to the waves
Some say breath pause is where
the sweetness
the focus
the possibility
the perfection
the life
happens

Even holding my breath,
the waves still meet the beach
with no regard to the sand
holding me fast in the water
as it's scooped up by the next wave
and the next
and the next
and the next
and the next
and the next

What happens here?
Do I anchor deeper in the sand and hold steady?
Do I fight the pulling and sucking of unconscious waves?
Do I dive in and let a riptide carry me away?
Do I walk to the sand and sit so far away the waves will never touch me?

Breathe in
Hold
Breathe out
Hold
Breathe In
Hold
Breathe Out
Hold

No move. No decision.
What doesn't happen here?
What hasn't happened here?

Am I as unconscious as a wave or
is the wave as conscious as I?
