On My Branch

                                          Left on a branch that has a crack...
                                    I sit still and stare out to a world of distract...
                               Blissful memories that hold my thoughts with a grip...
                                        As fallen sins still have the power to trip...
                                 I'm excepting the break and the fall that will come...
                                      Having said my peace to the moon and sun...
                                   It's not the drop as much as the snap that I fear...
                              So I will close my eyes and let faith whisper in my ear...

    This is what is referred to as radical acceptance, you know the branch is cracked and you know you will fall. Keep the faith Brother, it is the only way to break the fall. Good poem, lots to think about.

    A pleasure to sit and read poetry this morning. We are getting snow from the Hurricane and the cold northern air coming down from Canada here is Piqua, Ohio this morning. I am glad your excellent poem was one that I came across to read. I hope you are having a good day and if you are in the mist of this weather that you are safe and remain safe Michael. Love, Carol

    Fine writing, I like the utilization of "sound" in this poem. Those words really lend to the emotion of this one.
