look past the obvious
is a false calm
wrapping a rip
know to float with
do not resist
let it carry you
past the pull
for that long swim back
& for breathing
About Susan L Daniels
I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

I like this. Some things, you do not fight – you jusgt flow with your feelings and ride the waves, floating!
🙂 Thanks! Darned thing woke me up again, though…
Yes, some forces you just have to let carry you, willing or not.
Flowing words … lovely poem Susan 🙂
Reminds me of one of my favourite songs. My old blog carried an extrapolation of part of the lyrics as its title. Ohhhh… Paris Train, Beth Orton. I loved her play with swim, and you invoked the feel with your words.
Cool! Glad you liked 🙂
There are levels to this like a parable ! Bravo! Lovingly, Deb
Thanks so much, C!
