Holding Steady

by Jenny Leigh Hodgins 2009

Jittery, quivery

Rocky, rickety

Pulsing offbeat

Breathing out heat

Shaky like whirling leaves

Craziness interweaves

Into my thinking

I have no inkling

Just want my nerve

Poise to conserve

Lost like sheep

Hill too steep

Reaching, gripping

While I’m slipping,

Holding to my core

Faithful anchor

Never shifts

Never drifts

Always there

Just like air

Drawing in

Once again

I’m on solid ground

Suddenly have found

Steadiness like rock

Breakthrough to my block;

Solid root–My life

Powerful inside

Holding steady

To be ready


For the next ride…
