by Dana Fauld

There is no controlling life.

Try corralling a lightning bolt, containing a tornado.
Dam a stream and it will create a new channel.
Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.
Allow, and grace will carry you to higher ground.

Read the rest of the poem here.

Thanks to Mary Lee for hosting Poetry Friday at Year of Reading.

Carol, this is beautiful, certainly speaks to me right now about change, & I think it must to you also. Thank you for sharing it.

"When loss rips off the doors of the heart

or sadness veils your vision with despair,

practice becomes simply bearing the truth."

This is exactly what I need to hear today. Thank you so much for posting and encouraging me!
