Released to Freedom

January 19, 2013

trapped and exhausted
she tries the same thing over and over to get out.
her heart beat racing.
another heart steady beating enters the space she has filled with urgency and fear.
the beating of her self so loud she can barely make out the steady calm of his, as his hands cup around her.
The quiet darkness surrounding her she can’t see all that she can’t get to in front of her… she can’t see all the imagined fears behind her.
a warmth of an unseen assurance encloses her.
He holds her close to his heart. See how steady and calm it beats.
no need for fight or flight.
He is delighted to help her. This isn’t the place she was born for… and He is happy to release her to freedom.

    Oh wow, T, this is wonderful! I love the sweet chickadee. Was she injured? What a moment that your son could hold her like that! Love how you captured the moment the way you did. Beautiful!

      no she was stuck in the screened in porch and couldn’t escape. I am just glad he found her and could safely catch and release her.
