Letting Go

“We live in almost overwhelming danger, at a peak of our apparent control. We react to danger by attempting to take control, yet we still have to unlearn, as the price of survival, the inherent dominative mode.” – Raymond Williams


Sweep Me

Come and sweep me off my feet
Take me to the place where adventure lives
Where you catch a glimpse and that glimpse catches your breath
Breathless glimpsation of a providential moment made so by happenstance or mindful reflection

Come, sweep me off my feet
To that place of serenity and stillness
Where the shuffling silence of the world surrounding is just that- silenced
Silence shuffled with a cry for tranquility amongst taciturn hesitancy and doubt

Come, sweep me off my feet
To that place of gratitude and joy
Where the chest swells with laughter and thankfulness for love given and received
Loving laughter received and given thankfully

Come, sweep me into the arms of the unknown
To that place of mystery and encounter
Where the Other dwells and a greater Truth can be revealed
The truth of another revealed in our common dwelling

Come, sweep me off my feet
To know, to love, to listen, to explore.

Come, sweep me.
