Safe

Quieting December 8, 2016

I thought

I wanted to be

understood

or fixed.

But when it really

got down to it,

I wanted only

to find a place

where it was

safe

just to be me.

A Little at a Time

Continuing On, Unsorted October 6, 2016

It became increasingly helpful

to meet life

from a gentler place.

And so I held

my ground within

my heart —

remembering how

I had so delicately

held and let go

of all that crossed

my path

as I found my way

to this position —

letting go of all

I couldn’t sort out

all at once —

noticing as

pieces came together —

a little at a time —

naturally —

without my

over-thinking

and doing.

And with this same

natural motion,

I continued on.
