Trusting the Seed I Know: Love. ~ Edith Lazenby {Poem}

bubble night

I sit mid bubbles and starlight,

Float on a wave of lavender

And wear wings of rainbows.

I don’t know where I am going.

The moon rises at my dawn

And the sun sets on my dreams.

I know where I have been.

A path of baby toads and butterflies

Guides my steps as I shed my knowing

To explore what I don’t know

And embrace what I can let go:

Breath steadies my heart.

Hope braids energy up my spine.

I believe what I believe.

I know what I know.

Mushrooms can be magic or deathly.

Tragedy can make us break us.

Death is not always easy, nor hard.

Time tests all of us, if not young, then old.

I take the only seed I trust, love,

And let it grow beyond what I can hold.

Only then can I truly let go.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
