Friday Flash 55 — Being

Image: from 1000 drawings by sarah nieman, via Tumblr



More than just the personal blip
that at first she thought it was,
instead,
a major discomposure, a gravitational
pull, bore heavily down and
around her, compressing her essence
for self examination, then
gently
it drifted and filtered away, and,
with it, she too began to let go,
being
a being of release and liberation.



My post in exactly 55 words written for Friday Flash 55.

Love this. You wouldn't think being is such a hard thing to do. But it is.

This painting and your words are perfect together

Your writing is better and better, Lydia.

One often feels there are obstacles that are in the way. But if it gently drifts away it wouldn't be that bad. Nicely Writer!
