Silently Together: A Poem For You

Intake and outtake

In breath


out breath

Drawing in

Letting go

Life is like this,

I think.

When we forget

to do one

without the other

It’s like a marriage


Dance step

gone wrong

Toes squashed.

Lovers apart

who would much rather be

side by side

rowing in the same boat.

Separate but equal,

in synch with self and soul

with every wave

and each other

Silently together.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

This is how, I think,

everything works.

This is an excerpt from Laurie’s upcoming book Leap With Me: A Creative Path to Finding and Following Your True Voice.
