A Strike, A Flame, A Toss

Synchronized

Footsteps to the sound of my wristwatch 

A sputter of fast paced thoughts

My imagination’s firm grip on the handle, a printing press – my mind

Round and round, pages pile up until they teeter and spill to the floor

An open box, a lone match stick, waiting patiently to take hold of the reins

Winds on stand by, to breathe life, at the same time an end

Thumb and finger, a strike, a flame, a toss

Out of the darkness once more

    1. Letting go of something is filled with mixed emotions. Thoughts can be all consuming, yet be a part of you and difficult to let go. But in the end, letting go is liberating and necessary. Thank you for thoughtful comment. Much appreciated!
