the tenderness that wants to hold you


the tenderness that wants to hold you

Beneath the surface,
if you pay attention,
you can see
the light emanating.
Its only desire
to touch you.
Feel its warmth
like the sun upon your skin.
Fall into
the tenderness that wants to hold you.


Do you ever feel like there is something waiting for you, if you could only let go of what has its grip on you and surrender to what might be? I wrote this poem one morning as I connected with the power of something gentle and sweet to take care of me.


* I took this photo in my backyard of a columbine flower that had lost it’s outer petals to the wind.
