Instructions for Falling

 


  

It is not falling

you fear. It is not

the drop from here

 

to there, not the loss

of station, position,

control. Falling is

 

the way down and

the way out, the swing

of everything,

 

the turn, return,

whoop of joy

in the moment.

 

No, it is not falling

you fear. What you fear

is letting go.
