Learning to Stay Afloat

Learning To Stay Afloat

Learning To Stay Afloat ~ Original Acrylic by KimNelson

Learning to stay afloat
Takes time/experience

Adrift
Waves crash
Undertow grasps
Surf/life abrades, erodes

Then/when
You let go
of expectations
Accept what is/can be

You’re healed
Lightened
Brightened
Heightened
Enlightened

Free
To float

    I think part of it is like learning to get out of the quicksand.
    The more you fight it the faster you sink.
    Its about being calm and having faith
    in the laws of nature / & life.

    What a wonderful place to aim for – i love the image..the sense of being free..finding colour…seeing light..it takes a lot of work to be free..but aah the pleasure when we reach that place..

    Definitely it is a good feeling when someone feels they are healed! I like the fourth stanza and think that each of the four words (besides healed) can be synonymous with certain kinds of healing.
