Tightrope

September 25, 2018

images-1

A highwire stretches across a vast chasm.
We might spend a year or a lifetime
walking back and forth across this tightrope.
*
Perhaps we have even learned how to balance
on one foot, walk backwards, spin and leap—
and other such circus tricks!
*
But what if the great yawning maw below—
that which we tread above, with the aid
of our fancy gadgets and years of training—
*
is the very thing we seek? And we thought
we must endlessly study ourselves
and corset our own soul to avoid this!
*
But now you are exhausted
from all the precarious balancing.
You are killing yourself tip toeing around,
*
making up stories about what happens next.
Look down. Let the mind dizzy.
Let the foot slip. Fall hopelessly
*
into the chasm of your unbearable joy.

    Amazing how your poems arrive just at the perfect time for me, reflecting my inner journey. When that beautiful book comes out, I’m going to use it as an anthology of messages from Spirit–pick one for the day!
