Be brave and spread your wings
It might seem insane to jump out of your comfort zone
Releasing your safety for the unknown
Don’t hold back. It is time for you to fly.
Hearth is happily crackling, telling a tale of mirth
Yielding a soft warm glow into the room
Gifting a cozy sense of calm and comfort
Grafting the coming season to your soul
Entombing negative feelings for another time, another place
Creamy mac and cheese gooeyness winked at her from the plate
Ordering it had been a close thing.
More often than not she would have just gotten the salad
Fork discarded, she hefted her spoon
Outside world faded away as she hefted the golden goodness into her mouth
Relishing as her tastebuds fully validated her decision
That’s when she felt the warm and fuzzies from her head to her toes.
Putting things away, be they trinkets, memories, or even people
Leaves me feeling complete, and yet filled with an uneasy energy
As if the more compact I make my life, the more space I have to get lost in
Could it be clutter is the equivalent of comfort
Even to the point of not knowing where I am anymore?
Counting my blessings, one by one
Until I realized how full my life has been
Simple calculus that comforts me
Perhaps I’ve reached the apex of life?
