#FMF -Surrender

Joining up with my dear friends over at Five Minute Friday, a wonderful community of writers who are like family.

Prompt: Surrender

If I close my eyes
The noises grow louder
My thoughts warring for space
Pieces of things said to me echo
And it feels like I’m vibrating
If only when I opened my mouth
All these thoughts, words, feelings
Could pour silently from my mouth
Released into the wild open
Of the everyday world
Perhaps they would become lost
In the noise that makes up
The day to day
And I’d be free
To close my eyes
Just lean back
Feel the sun on my face
And surrender
To quiet
At least for now

  1. Thank you for this poem! The reminder to release things in our lives so that we can receive deep rest has come up a number of times in the past few days… your poem was yet another reminder of that truth.
