Dip my Head

I dip my head
under the water, to be re-assured
my heart still beats
rhythmic and strong
pulsing life throughout my body
I hold my breath, it gently slows
but
just like my grief
eventually
I must let go

      Thanks Nida. In a strange way it is life affirming to me, we don’t give much thought to how our body works, and to hear the confirmation is reassuring.

    Hello Claudette, I haven’t been to your blog for ages, so catching up. I try not to comment on too many older posts, but a ‘like’ just wasn’t good enough for these lovely words. Beautiful. ā¤

      Thanks Christine, you’ve made my stats go through the roof today, wordpress just told me šŸ™‚
      I am happy for you to comment on old or new. I think some of my best stuff is stuck in the past šŸ˜‰
      This little poem arose in my mind and I had to keep reciting it till I got to the computer some time later.
