Surrender is Not

wild-horses-2239420_1280

Surrender is not a stormy cloud that gives in to its grief
nor is it the rainbow that floods the sky with promise
Surrender is the letting go, of what you expect to see,
and living in the moment, allowing it to be

 
Succumb to the present, think not of the past,
for it is unfaltering and cannot change
Rather, open your heart to feel each blade
of verdant grass between your tender toes
 
Taste the fragrant wind on your tongue
as it blows across the flowering meadow
Listen to its songs, once unsung
immerse in the tender melody
 
And if you find yourself being fully present
your heart will smile at your  complete surrender
for your trapped ego is at last letting go
