    Default Beyond My Walls

    It's walls and walls and all I want
    is retreat, to hold my sleepy baby,

    the one in the soft pink gown
    with curious toes peeking from beneath,

    and to bury my face
    in her freshly washed hair spilling

    over a painted pillowcase.
    Her room is full of stuffed animals

    and imaginary friends in sleeping bags.
    She whispers to me of her audition,

    and I tell her that she is strong
    and creative and smart and she can imagine

    that she is fierce,
    even if she feels weak-tummied.

    She suggests that I audition, too.
    I breathe in her innocence

    and count the tiny flourescent stars
    on the ceiling.

    Beneath my hand, her heart races.
    "What would my talent be?" I wonder aloud.

    She laces her fingers with mine,
    pulls my arm closer to her chest, thinking.

    "You're easy," she says, dozy.
    "I am?" I inquire.

    "Your talent is love," she answers.
    "I'll stand beside you so they can see."

    My heart brims and carries me beyond.

    Carol,
    As always, your writing comes with warmth, purpose, truth and a touch of
    eye opening reality. It was just what I needed this morning.

    It's the walls
    and the winds
    and the strange tasting tea
    maybe the heart
    and the soul
    that I never believed

    It's the sand
    and the sea
    and the road leading home
    maybe the sight
    and the sounds
    that refuse to let go

    It's the song
    and the dance
    and the games people play
    maybe the rage
    and the fear
    that will be miles away

    It's the maps
    and the suitcase
    and the box full of shoes
    maybe the thrill
    and adventure
    that I will not refuse

    It's the prayer
    and the answers
    and the thankful retreat
    maybe the fall
    and the rise
    that resolves me to be

    Please move on to the thread called "Composures."
    We'll write there if it's all right with everyone.

    Esoteric was great stuff; thanks everybody.
