Inspiration: Release...

"You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life'"  Wayne Dyer

Inspiration: Release...


Small Stones #14
Release what no longer serves you...
The plans we make to change
The ideas and wishes...
Wash them away
Release the need...

Release the tears and lingering hurts...
The recriminations we hope to use
The retributions and regrets too...
Sweep them, hose them
Release the pain...

Today, for my Small Stones #14, I am using one of the words on a list from Mamakat's weekly prompts.
Release is a word I've had to mull over a lot.


More below!

"Secrecy involves a tension which, at the moment of revelation, finds its release." Georg Simmel
Inspiration: Release...


Small Stones #7
Holding on to tired, old ideas
Like tired, old shoes...
Pretending they are new
Who do we really fool?
Time to embrace the revelation
Release...

Holding unto long, lost loves
Like tattered pictures, crumbling to dust...
Pretending they were soulmates
Who do we really fool?
Time to relinquish the unrequited
Release...


What are small stones?
  According to the originators of this wonderful exercise, a small stone is a short piece of writing (prose or poetry) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment. The process of discovering small stones is as important as the finished product. Searching for small stones will encourage you to keep all your senses; - your eyes,(and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.




Some Food for Thought: How are you releasing what no longer serves you?  Take a moment to contemplate what release means to you? Love and Peace.

I would love to hear from you: Please leave me a comment. Thank You!

  1. Sometimes we make plans and then other stuff happens and we just have to release our plans... God knows best. Spent the day in the hospital with a loved one and had to release my worries to the creator. Blessings to all!
