“acceptance” by L.K. Thayer

when you find it

it speaks to you

there is a soothing voice

a touch, a sense

of belonging

the uncertainty of yesterday is filled with passion

grace and Light

it illuminates your every breath

when you find it

the covers come down from over your head

your feet slip into the shoes

that once didn’t fit

and you can walk forever

with a new attachment to the earth

beneath your feet

when you make the discovery

a warm shawl is wrapped around

shadows of doubt, fear

and disbelief

you take on a new stroll

a saunter, a strut

you are able to enter doors

that were once closed

open windows that were hammered shut

look through curtains that allow you to see

the view, for the very first time

when it comes to you

welcome it, answer it, embrace it

ride the magic carpet

ride the wave of fortune found

take the joy ride

    So honoured by adding my little process to your lovely words. I had to improve my english, but it’s sound well to my mind.
