Sensing the beginning of a new unraveling
Impetus inside wants to be traveling
Feelings I’m feeling I’ve felt before
A longing welling-up to walk out the door

The journey ahead seems less than joyful
What’s bubbling up borders on mournful
The dark place calling hardly inviting
Resistance is low none left for fighting

I like to keep busy meeting and greeting
Providing great comfort helping with seeding
Endless promoting not my deep longing
I like respect admiration innovation belonging

The yearning inside wants the joyous somehow
The stillness I sense is part of me now
Endocrine glands on overload without rhyme
Churning and burning are no fun this time

I look for great peace soon in the future
More out of life and family to nurture
I need all of you across each wide county
Sharing the roots that are my precious bounty

Who do you miss the connection to?
What feelings does that connection generate for you?
What grounding does it provide?
What makes the connection important?
Do they know?
What is the risk in telling them?
