Reach and Release

Reach

unattainably far
striving, fighting, wanting

desperate

to go beyond
to be whole
to have hope

tip-toes
almost
inhale
stretch

eager, hopeful
budding in the sun

Release

open hands
no longer grasping

cleansing

from the past
the lies
the pain

arms wide
body arched
exhale
relax

dreamy contentment
grounded in the present



From a prompt for Story 101
