Sorrow Extended

Sorrow Extended

when we feel it in the heart
a sadness, a sense of loss
and the body responds
weighted with the dross

what is it we’re feeling
vibrations? emotions?
past life connections
or imaginative devotions?

can we release this
thru action, with music?
meditative pondering
or assistance called in?

who/what is the source?
what is the issue?
do we own this encumbrance
or does it simply exist?

to quiet the mind we can
engage in acts of kindness
get out in nature
listen to silence

let it go
let it go
then steep in the emptiness
for to slowly allow
a fresh start will be born
