MONDAY’S POEM: Breaking Free

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.
