Swimming to the Promised Land

icicles on barn

When Sun shines bright, my grip relaxes,

I let go of death and taxes,

pool at place where thirst is quenched,

smile where jaw was tightly clenched.

Puddling messes can be scary,

Life’s complex, and heart is wary,

but when fist becomes a hand,

soul can swim to Promised Land.

    A lot of facets to this ice sickle… πŸ˜‰ Love the death and taxes——the only two things that are sure? Perhaps, perhaps not… πŸ˜€

      This is a really important theme for the past year for me – I have been forced to let go of so very much. And as I look back, what I have let go of has made room in my hands and heart for better things – so here’s to letting go!
