Adrift

Free from inhibition

Free from inhibition
Unshackled from all care
No tethers left to hold me
I’m walking on thin air.

Adrift on translucent waters
Floating far away from shore
In suspended animation
With no cares anymore.

Connected to the elements
And blown by the breeze
Staying in the moment
And letting all time freeze.

Captured in a photograph
A memory etched in stone
Caught in a split second
In a stilled sepia tone.

Free of masks and disguises
And tasks that tie me down
Shedding off ties that bind
Donned in a magic gown.

Transformed into one
Only seen in a dream
Adrift upon the river
Floating down the stream.

There is no destination
Freedom is where I’m going
Wherever the wind takes me
Is where my spirit’s blowing.

Over the hills and valleys
Gliding to the seashore
Adrift and free forever
Satisfied right to the core.
