Becoming Human by Donna19

Currently unavailable for purchase

Out of the deep emerging
Shedding captivity
An ocean falling away
Fins unfurling into legs
She carries solitary hope
Tender the paws of adventure
Beneath her, solid ground
She wanders into unknown living
Willow-ed near the river
She leaps upon a leaf
Grasping stems to guide
Around one bend then two
Blooms on branches bursting
Catching colors within her hands
Painting face and fins
Onward bound her pace steady
She settles onto the lapping shore
Disembarking into the unknown
Marching with grave intentions
Old life’s breathing stopped
Lost the windy whispers gone
Each day’s moving forward
Stronger her smiles became
Higher her sparkling eyes rose
Now living above the drag
No currents pulling down
Loving the outstretched hands
Paradise found and grasped
Dancing in sunrises kiss
Loving in sunsets bliss

Sergei Rukavishnikov collaboration.

Sometimes imagination can be a comforting diversion. I love living and feel blessed to be able to experience life within each day that comes. Grateful I am and thirsty I will always be for more.
