BORDERS AND BOUNDARIES, NO.20, NAPOWRIMO

 

Beat

beat on

beat back.

Break 

break in

break out.

Hold 

hold on

hold out

for happy

for hopeful 

for a harbour.

We can be drums

beating out every breath

breaking down every boundary 

having a hold on the harbour 

while the current 

caresses us with connection 

that is ours for the catch.

We can be beaten

or beat upon the drum.

We can be broken 

or break free.

We can be held captive

or hold out

for something greater.

    i read this with a steady heartbeat, breathing in and out.
    (If you want a drum set, we have son-in-law’s in the basement. . .) 🙂

      I might take you up on that my dear! Always fancied I could make a louder noise with a set of drums- I only had a recorder as a kid!! 😮
