an easy surrender

An Easy Surrender  by Teri H Hoover


Huckleberry Trail, Blacksburg VA- Aug 19, 2011
 in the vast places 
among the waves of clouds
my heart sings.


Today upon this footpath my heart fell open to that place of blessing- the one that carries the surrendered soul. One look at those clouds and I disappear like vapor. Clouds and oceans, and deserts- 
spaces too large for me to hold.

I fall into the embrace of being. 
Unbound 
by the grief of what I have not done. 
My body sighs with relief- not remembering what I need to forget.  
Safe within the two mile circle I walk with my dog.
