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

Deep Blue

Deep Blue Sea

Deep Blue

Battered and abandoned
In a private
Deep Blue
Sea

Caught in currents
Tossed, turned, tumbled
Slapped away
Viciously

But between the thunderous crashing
Profound silence, undertow
Know
You’re not alone

Hear!
See!

You lift, updraft and buoy
As you seek breath at the top
Paired with forces, primal, flowing
Prompting others
Not to stop

Trying.
To succeed.
To be
Free.

Fear of Falling

Kim 2-18-13 at 10.27 AM ... Fear of Falling

Fear of Falling… Falling… Falling…
Despite an attitude of gratitude
Times occasionally
Elicit grief
Sadness
Want

Tears

Cling
To lower lid
Hovering just above
Cheek exerting every cell
To avoid falling, falling, falling

Is
this
why I
harbor a
fear of falling?
