winds of change


I watch

the wind

sway the trees

the tree

shaken to its core

held tight to the ground

its roots

deeply

embedded

into the earth

a foundation strong

to withstand

the winds

the branches

swayed

in the breeze

the leaves

tossed

from side and to side

the wind whipped

at my body

it stirred

my sense

of complacency

I looked

at the tree

once again

some leaves

fluttered away

the tree

shed the old

the new leaves

were strong

and steadfast

the new

didn’t need

shedding

but

the tree

knew

it needed

to release

the old

The old

served

no purpose

it held back

the growth

of the new

the wind

stirred around

me

it whispered

hold on

or

let go

I knew

I needed

to let go

of the old

it has

no place

in the now

It served

only to

hold me

back.

I had learnt

grown

it was time

to release.

I faced the wind

closed my eyes

exhaled

and released

the weight of the past

into the

breath

of the wind

I opened my eyes

to see

the now

to live

the now

to create

the new
