Fear

Mental Monday #1
by Suzanne Coley

12 weeks ago our journey began
each with a fear heavier than we could carry

exhaling memories no one could see
blue phobias no one could touch

drowning slowly, searching for light
dark seas with dragon silhouettes

fire blazes, scorching our skin 
with each thought

12 weeks ago I dropped everything I was doing to learn how to swim.  My instructor is phenomenal!  I documented every aspect of the process and will post the poems and images on Mondays.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
