October Theme… Falling

The universal theme of a falling dream …

Do I wake in terror unwilling to face the outcome?

Do I persevere and see where I will land?

Do I breakthrough to another theme of flying?

Excerpt from ” Cutting the Clouds, a bayou mystic’s poems, musings and imaginings:”

The Head of a Pin

Standing on the head of a pin

Waiting for the wind to

Send me into the abyss.

I miss those days when

Caring meant sharing love,

Not spending it like coins

Slammed into a slot

On a wish and a prayer.

Not knowing when or if

The investment will see a return.

My concern

Is not for you

Or even about you

But without you

How will I remember

While standing on this pin,

How to trust again?

Only a fool forgets the wind.

A bigger fool still,

Forgets she has wings to fly.
