summer swallows you
wanting to last forever
one crimson leaf falls
my son drops feet first into into the bright warm
air of summer.
this is the moment, no holding back,
as he becomes one with the turquoise water.
first air, then water,
into the arms of total surrender, into the heart of being summer,
into the joy of living intensely.
and in all this letting go...
has it happened for you?
one crimson leaf
one hand in summer,
one footstep into fall.
today may you give yourself freely to the world around you.
may you surrender your burdens, forget the weight of things,
fall without reservation into the
heart of the heart
into the joy of living
one bright moment to the next.
where we gather on fridays to share unconditionally
our love of life in small words.
no theme, no prompts, no rules.
just acceptance and appreciation for our truths shared.
