Lost In The Wind
©2013 Louise Gallagher
I didn’t know what I wanted
and ended up getting what I didn’t need
I didn’t know where I was going
and ended up arriving
I didn’t want to be.
It seems that when I am lost in inattention
or uninspired in my direction finding
I flounder in the seas of apathy
and find myself losing my voice
to the wind.
Breathing deeply I catch my breath
and rest a moment on the shores
of creativity rising from the mists
of my beginnings
crying out to me to awaken and rise up
to the essential essence of my being
alive and present to life
calling me to sing out my name.
