Drift - Poem by Suzanne Hayasaki

Lift the pole
Let the boat drift
Listen to the wind
As it rustles in the leaves
And remember home.

Remember time spent alone.
The time before you knew
Who you were
Who you could be
What would stand in your way.

Remember becoming.
Remember nebulousness.
Remember how good it felt
To be nothing but potential.

Let yourself re-enter that state.
Become nothing.
Become one.
Reclaim wonder.

In the moment, be.
Watch the ripples.
Feel the sun.
Reach out and touch the willows.

They are your sisters.
Let them weep for you.
Let their falling leaves
Retain your pain
And float it away.

Then begin again.
Free of the weight
Of self.
