I have taken a month's pause in writing a weekly blog entry to focus on some pressing priorities as well as take some needed R&R. Below is a poem written during my break. It is good to be back.
FIRE OR WATER?
Fire burns. Water drowns.
Fire heats the heart. Water buoys the soul.
Fire brings energy. Water brings calm.
Fire has potential for healing and destruction.
Water does too.
Today I choose water. I am at a lake and
the sound of the waves lapping against the shore
heals my “not know where I am going” soul.
I accept the undercurrent of feelings beneath
and am blanketed in the calming of
the lap, lap, lapping of waves on land.
