Wind, Hold Your Breath

Wind, hold your breath.

Waiting world

whispers,

tarrying,

lingering,

loitering leaves listening

for their name to be dropped,

their turn to free-fall.

No parachute needed,

just

melted resistance

and severed ties.

So wind,

hold your breath;

for this leap of faith

needs soft landing…

    This is how I felt when opportunity knocked & I took that leap to go with it.
