Lay Your Worry Down

by Stefani on 23-August-2007

Lay Your Worry Down

Just for today,
Look up,
And see only blue.

Not questions
Not doubts
Not might have beens,


Let the cold,



Spill over you,
Wash your troubles away.

Close your eyes.

Think of Nothing

Hear only cicadas,

Singing water,

Dancing leaves.

Not the things you wish had been said.

Breathe in,

Open your hands,

And lay your worry down.

Let It Go

You set me free, woman! Reminds me of that song: “…and let the sun wrap its arms around me and bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing”. Thanks for sharing your oh-so-special way of seeing this world.

Hey! I think I should put on some goggles and float down the river, too. He doesn’t look like he’s had a worry in his life… thanks for the inspiration.
