Surrendering to Love

It begins. OctPoWriMo seventh annual poetry challenge begins now. The words flow from many all over the world. Some link up and some choose to play with their words offline. Will you be one of them?

Today's prompt is about surrendering to love, allowing oneself to open to love within and love from others.

Love
it isn't as simple as
black and white
so much baggage to unpack
being in the moment
can be painful
and then there are
moments of
joy
sudden and sharp
making colors come alive
music sound brighter
hope blossoms
and then is dashed
again
again
surrender is a state of
mind
surrendering to love
doesn't always feel safe
will now be the time
will now be the place
surrendering to love
myself

...

Hop on over to OctPoWriMo to see what other poets are writing about Surrender.

Peace,
Willow a.k.a. MDragonwillow

    1. Thank you, Sunita. It is always with mixed feelings I come to OctPoWriMo. There is always great expectation and excitement mixed with much anxiety; like a lot of things in my life. I'm happy OctPoWriMo is so fulfilling for you.

      Peace.
