TURBULENCE

The turbulence is there

Even in the quiet

Inside the gentle rocking

The to and fro of life

It’s always, always there

Like a crouching cat

Just waiting

To release its fury

Because at its core

Turbulence is furious

And before you know it

Before you can hold on

With great sweeping tides

And deep churning swells

It knocks you off your feet

And laughs as you wobble

On rubber-band legs

It mocks you as you collapse

Over and over again

As you roll in a heap

From one edge to another

It’s when you stop fighting

Stop trying to stand

As if on stable ground

It’s when you close your eyes

Long enough to feel the pattern

That life begins to lead

And then turbulence

Becomes just another beat

You’ve learned to dance to
