New Cup

So here I stand
Cup in hand
It overflows with stagnant slime covered liquid
Nothing can be added and the old will not help create the new
So with that I pour the contents to the floor
And with the empty cup in hand
I see that the vessel will not hold the bigger grander plan

The cup had it’s day and
It’s time to throw it away
To the floor it is released
Pieces on the floor nothing more

A new vessel is awaiting, temporary for sure
One day it will end on the floor
But it will hold the next journey at hand
A grander, more difficult journey
New skin, new mission, it’s time to begin

On the cup a reminder of what’s allowed within
light heart, curious spirit, able willing body, play mindset:
Embolden all

 

Last year, while we were at the beach, my husband captured a photo of me resting after attempting to skim board.  That same day, before we went out in the morning, he kindly asked if I wanted a chair to sit on.  I declined stating “I practice what I preach so I’m going to sit on the sand.  All I need is a towel.”  Then he listened patiently while I started riffing about how it would be hypocritical of me to sit in a chair on the beach when I’m all about natural movement.

He laughed and then started his little rap song.

SQUAT
I practice what I preach
I squat on the beach
natural movement is within your reach!

Of course one verse just won’t do so, he added another with the things that make me, uniquely me;  Star Wars (specifically Jedi skills), Equine Coaching, MovNat, and of course I’m always thinking of silly things to do with and on my horses.

I took a lot of courses
I meditate on horses
I am a student of both the light and dark forces!

I love my husband for his sense of humor and rhyme!
