Somewhere Between Earth and Sky

Transition by definition is; the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another. To think of the process in its totality is rather magnificent. I envision it as if we are catapulted off the earth in the most beautiful arc, and when we finally land on our feet, the transformation has taken place and we have evolved. The period of flying, the scary and challenging part, is what fascinates me most. Flying or floating somewhere between Earth and sky, your stomach in knots, doing summersaults as you soar exhilarated and terrified, trying not to look down. Its hard to see clearly when you’re in the middle of your own rebirth, no matter how large or small, yet the view can be stunning, if we stop, take a breath and take notice.

This how I transform.

Things He Said

There once was a girl, who once loved a man.

She gave and she gave, with very little given back.

She saw through glasses made of roses,

while washing the world with good intentions.

One winter evening at a party with friends,

her world fell apart with the things that he said.

“I tell you I love you, but I don’t love you,”

He said.

She sat staring

Her eyes glazed

Her face contorted

In confusion

“I think you’re stupid; I think you’re the devil,”

He said.

She staggered to her feet

Failures complete

Her body felt heavy

Her head was dizzy

“There is nothing for you here, girl.”

He said.

“Just big dark love, girl.”

She felt lost and alone,

with nothing to do but run.

There is hope for the flowers,

in this great big world.

There is lots more living to do,

for this caterpillar girl.

She built her cocoon and is ready for change.

It’s only a matter of time

Til she emerges as a butterfly.
