Music bubbling like a breath underwater
Notes popping as they break the surface
My endless worries drift away
Like boats cut from their ties

Freeing me from becomings
Free to just be

A livlier tune now curls round the leaves
Shaking spring petals from the branches
Coiling like a spiral staircase,
Ever upwards, ever onwards

The view is ever changing,
Yet always is

Old fears retreat to distant shadows
Palest blue blips on the horizon
I move upwards, move onwards
Perspectives stretching as I climb

Away from the everyday
Towards forever
