Tiny Nuances

The circle stretches miles long
Hands held, leaving no room
Baring the strength of steel

Some things cannot be forced
Tiny nuances glow in time
The truth, clear as pure water

Emotions flood out
Frenzied with freedom
The agony is extreme

Floatingdown, down
Falling reckless
Into arms open wide

To guide and to calm
Into moving forward

The circle remains as

  1. Hi Lauren, A beautiful poem. Immediately, the word β€œcircle” indicates strength. And, yet, β€œInto arms open wide” indicates the strength of love. I love the perfect title and all it says. ❀️

  2. This is beautiful, Lauren. It reminds me of a healing circle and the idea of holding each other in unconditional love. Freedom and fear and a safe place to let go. The arms of a healing community are so powerful. Loved this. ❀

    1. Thanks for your beautiful comment, Diana. You said it perfectly. I love “the arms of a healing community” especially comforting in these surreal times. Driving through our little town, we see iconic small businesses that have closed for good and it’s so sad. The world is different and when Covid passes, it will be new all over. Have a good weekend and stay well, my friend. πŸ’œ

      1. It’s so sad that some businesses haven’t survived this. I hope some return, but you’re right, things will look different on the other side of this. I hope we will find the heart and will to create something better for everyone. ❀

I appreciate your thoughts!
