Wordy Wednesday



standing on the edge

my toes are curled around the sandstone, gripping to all i know about my past

my past experiences, past triumphs, past disappointments

but then there is a rustling in the trees causing me to point my head to the sky

and there it is

the calming sea of the atmosphere

with its soft puffy waves moving slowly with the current of the air

emerging, combining, deciding where to release its deluge of renewal.



i am once again in tune with myself

my eye peers down over the precipice and i see a figure in the water.

it appears to have outstretched arms and a warm countenance

my toes begin to wiggle

my body is telling me to move ahead

to release myself from what is known and dive into the unknown

the figure begins to turn its head

it’s now or never

if i don’t jump now,

i’ll have to go it alone,

without knowing who that is

why they were waiting for me here,

and what my future could be with them in it.

i close my eyes

time passes faster than a swift inhale and exhale of breath

and there you are beside me

or were you there this whole time waiting for me to let go?
