Today a spider came floating through the air
and hovered a while above where I sat
suspended for a moment
but only a silky thread to its name,
reminding me of something so long forgotten
that it is possible to float in this troubled world
and offer oneself to the breeze
trusting in where we are blown
and be at ease in these strange and uncomfortable places we land.
Perhaps and island of discovery awaits,
unimagined possibilities beckoning us
from our familiar and predictable lives
into something so new it would leave us astonished.
What if you were going to set sail,
to give it all up to the winds that blow outside your home
with only a thread tying you to your life,
to what you knew for sure
and took that leap you have been waiting for?
The door is already open, the breeze is quickly passing.
Will you take this chance and jump?
It may be the best thing you ever did.
