Second Half

IMG_8503I saw
this butterfly
emerge from her cocoon…
so vulnerable,
she held on to what
had held her…
long enough to
see a different self.
then slowly strengthened
she let go
to trust the gift
of who she is
and the Wind
who gives her flight.

There is an important pause between transitions or on a threshold that are necessary pauses.  Periods of waiting before the next step.  That time between the times, between the seasons where we look around and see that there is something new and valuable, and that we are ready to let go.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!
