          I Float                                             Seasons of Life

          By Traci Trezona                                    By Eva Redding

          You dropped me in the deep end, to see if I would   Offer me a tingle of spring
            float. Over and over and over again.              Crawling slowly yet consciously
          I soon grew tired and weary.                        Tiny drops of heaven renew our thirst for life.
          I was no longer floating, but rather treading water.  Refreshed and determined, earth offers yet another promise.
          Then, before I knew it, I was sinking.              Promise of eternal future, lush pastures and unblemished lamb
          Sinking. Suffocating. Drowning.                     Lamb that is eagerly welcomed and adored.
          All senses shut off.                                Pure and innocent, tingle of spring has arrived.
          Source dove into those waters and pulled me to shore.
          Cold, wet, alone, and hungry for more, I was left there   Take away the burden of summer.
            with a vision.                                    Fresh wounds exposed and sizzling
          A vision of life. On my terms. Full of love, laughter, and   Perched soil gnarled and thirsty.
            peace.                                            Heavy and oppressed we march in desperation
          Now I bury my heart in the deepest of oceans.       Into the heat that never leaves.
          I float.                                            With starlight comes relief
          Every. Single. Time.                                Lonely cowboy trapped inside the belly of the night,
          On my terms.                                        where indigo skies never end in the burden of summer.
          Do the oceans get rough and turbulent from time to
            time?                                             Lavish me with anticipation of autumn
          They absolutely do, but someone always throws me a   Crisp and fresh dwelling deep into the earth.
            lifevest.                                         Essence of ripeness and abundance
          That someone is me.                                 Rejoicing in the velvet skins of harvest.
          I choose to save myself.                            Amber and rust richly surround the soul
          Every. Single. Time.                                Dancing and drunk, our brushes soaked in auburn palettes
                                                              Magicians fill their cups with the anticipation of autumn.
                                                              Gift me winter peace
                                                              Quiet and still, humbly dormant
                                                              Unrushed and unencumbered
                                                              Frozen yet warm. Escaping time renews faith.
                                                              Faith that won’t quit with emerging sundown
                                                              Anticipation too mighty to put out the flames.
                                                              Resting courageously our minds dwell in the gift of winter peace.
