Evelyn over at Filling a Hole has tempted me to participate in the Buddha Rocks Project. The timing of this is quite good for me because since finishing NaNo I have not written anything. I have not even continued working on my NaNo novel. I need to get the juices flowing again and I need to wake inspiration back up before she completely goes to sleep for the rest of the winter.
The Buddha Rocks Project is cool because it involves writing every day for seven days starting today. Each day you use a different photo which can be chosen from a vast library by Eric Alder located at Bubba’s Place Deviant Art Gallery – Buddha Rocks. There are so many great pictures there that I dare say there is something for everyone.
So here is today’s piece and the photo that inspired it.
As the sun goes down on my life and I become more than a memory.
I will close my eyes and prepare for my moment.
Then soar into the sky and feel the wind dance all around.
Enjoy a moment of freedom, no longer anchored to the body that was earth bound.
From way up there, I will feel free to judge the life I lived below.
Strong roots gave me support.
They taught me never give up without a fight.
I hope my seeds have learned the same lesson from me.
Then I will take one more untethered breath.
Wait until I am ready and make my gentle descent.
What life do I want now? The choice is not entirely mine.
I will grit my teeth and open my mind.
Whether I wished it or not.
I am immortal and I will never truly die.
