Beautiful Emptiness

With all of the pieces

gathered up,

after having glimpsed

the true peace

at the bottom of

the deep abyss below,

I let go

of everything

and jumped.

I stopped seeking,

stopped questioning,

stopped trying

to know the exact right

way to do it.

This time,

I trusted the pieces

to fall where they needed

to fall.

And I held on

to the beautiful

emptiness in the very center

of my heart instead.
