Play With Abandon
Play with abandon,
Fling your arms to the skies,
Fly over the waves wearing necklaces of seaweed and shells.
Skip along the lanes and the meadows
Gathering wildflowers and shiny stones.
Be free, never constrained.
Feel life as it was meant to be,
Washing in and out with the waves
As they dance through your mind.
Taking you to the fortress of your soul-
Softening your heart.
You can always be here,
To play with abandon.
As you fling your arms to the sky and fly…

This poem was written on a particularly difficult day. These words became my voice as they poured from my heart. They remind me to never let go of play….it is the dance of my soul.

Special Note: The pictures here are of my niece, Samantha Abel, when she was 2 years old playing at the beach, and at home. She will turn 16 in November…how time does fly. They are a perfect illustration for my mantra, Play With Abandon.
