Growth Edges

Cliffs, canyons, mountain tops, or roof tops
Everyone’s growth edges are their own
They are not distinct or definitive
For as dwellers of Earth, our landscapes inform and guide our experiences
Approaching these growth edges we can see an endless horizon
A depth that entices and in turn can invite caution
There is intelligence in hesitancy
There is also intelligence in stepping back and creating space
Make room for a full sprint toward that edge for leap into the place we are birthed from: the womb, the golden orb, and which remains mysterious
Growth edges are places to cultivate improvisation
How we gall towards the ground or soar toward the clouds isĀ  up to the poet writing and living the poem to decide
Self-potential is shape shifting
