I had to share with you this poem by Danna Faulds, which reached my inbox last week via Lindsay Mead of A Design So Vast. Being far removed from the ocean, I don’t have images of waves or tidal waters to illustrate Danna’s magical words. Instead I give you the blue sky and an arrow pointing the way.
Let go of the ways you thought life
would unfold; the holding of plans
or dreams or expectations – Let it
all go. Save your strength to swim
with the tide.
The choice to fight what is here before
you now will only result in struggle,
fear, and desperate attempts to flee
from the very energy you long for.
Let go. Let it all go and flow with the
grace that washes through your days
whether you receive it gently or
with all your quills raised to defend
Take this on faith: the mind may never
find the explanations that it seeks, but
you will move forward nonetheless.
Let go, and the wave’s crest will carry
you to unknown shores, beyond your
wildest dreams or destinations. Let it
all go and find the place of rest and
peace, and certain transformation.
