Unless I Let It Go*

the wind and sky
storm inside, fears crystallize--
fractals in my mind

  

*Found poem from "Let It Go" lyrics by Idina Menzel (theme song of Disney movie Frozen)

I so resonate with the fractals in the mind and the weight of them.......right where I'm at right now. This message hits home.

powerful and emotional, the hold of fear, the joy of letting go.

Excellent letting it go setting and distillation.

Fear is certainly the hardest thing to let go, yet it is the one I'd say we should definitely get rid of.

I'm always pleasantly surprised when poets create something quite special with just a few words!

Very powerful, well chosen words - the image created packing a strong, thought provoking message.

I love this business of making something from something else. That's what art is, I reckon.

Found poems are fun.
Fears... so hard to let go of...but how freeing when done.

Laurie, nicely done! Fears do freeze us. Fractals is such a wonderful word too :-)

Well done. Laurie! This was epigrammatic and trenchant.
