MONDAY’S POEM: Breaking Free

September 15, 2014 Leave a comment

The theme of the week is “possibilities.” This is the week of Rosemary’s Possibilities Playshop scheduled for Saturday, September 20, 2014.  To pursue possibilities requires change. Change requires breaks. I wrote today’s poem almost 5 years ago but it seems to pertain well to the theme of the week!

Breaking Free

Who of us knows
how to break free
with grace, with ease,
with a light heart?

Break; the very word
has a jolt to it.
There’s a stopping to brake,
but an ending to break.

Yet, there’s an essential
to breaking which can’t
be ignored. Without it
there is nothing new, nothing free.

Every movement requires a break.
Every freedom requires an ending.
There is a grace to the slow dance
And a leap of heart in the advance.
