Day 172

Keep it Light

Like a seed
planted into the darkness
I let go of my shell
and reached for the light.

And when I finally reached the surface
I found
that life itself was light—
easier to breathe
and more joy to be experienced.

Perhaps people
living on the surface
know what they are doing?

Again the Universe reminds me
about balance:

Grow your roots deep,
but reach for the light
and keep things light;
after all,
no one wants to feel heavy
all of the time.
