Leaving and Arriving (Poem by Sandy Wilder)

Leaving and Arriving

Some things must leave
so other things can arrive.

When judgment leaves
compassion arrives.

When objectification of people leaves
innocence arrives.

When willfulness leaves
tenderness arrives.

When fear of being vulnerable leaves
intimacy arrives.

When the desire to flee leaves
Presence arrives.

When pride leaves
divine sweetness arrives.

When control leaves
humility arrives.

When procrastination leaves
progress arrives.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
