Letting Go of Good


Letting go of good
I sink
sink
into quiet

just me
and a heart that keeps beating 
just me
and a breath that keeps breathing

As the trying
stops trying
it all
slows
slows down

and I feel myself falling
falling back
into a knowing
that has always known

Opening
to something
far
far bigger
than good

  2. Julia,
    Tonight is my second night performing in the local pantomime. As I drove home just now, I thought of you. I miss blogging at the moment, but am allowing myself to *blossom* on stage. This is such an important week for Little Ell and all of Ell. Just wanted to share that with you and say that I look forward to being able to reimmerse myself here soon.

    I love reading your poetry. It's somewhere I can melt into and allow the harsh edges to soften, soften.... 'as the trying stops trying'
    Much love to you,
    Elloa xxx

  3. Beautiful words ... and I love your word "blossom" I chose the word believe, and I will work hard to do so.... not without fear, but being brave along the way.
