art, ethereal, letting go, nature, poetry, time


sketch by Carmen H Gray

Arms and legs suspended like drapery

Today I imagined my heart split open and a bouquet of flowers

Burst forth

While I lingered in the tender vines

I surrendered to time

And all of the entanglements it demands

Leaves fall when they are ready

To give the ground a soft landing

For a well worn boot

Or a home to rich fertile earth secrets
