Float - Jill Fitz Hirschbold Photography
Lift Away

I float to see nothing,

to hear nothing,

to feel nothing,

of my earth bound self


I float to see everything,

to hear everything,

to feel everything

that lies beyond and within my skin


I float to release my mind,

my heart my soul

to see into the unknown

the known


floating in the dark

in the silence

in the nothingness

that is everything


up

out

and away


bearing witness to the rainbow coloured threads

erupting from my heart to those I know

twisting, turning, stretching as they go


believing in what the ancients said

that nothing we do

can break these threads


but my shapeless hands they bled

as it felt my childhood threads

ripped and tore away from their once

heart anchored bed


so much pain in letting go

although I know in doing so

will leave behind which binds my mind

becoming free to flow through time and space


to float


far


far


away
