A freedom jar
I wanted to make a freedom jar for you
for all the sections of the heart
where ease and joy, grief and loss,
could find space to be together
without a need to get rid of or change
without a need to hold onto anything
unless it wanted to be held.
Could this be the way we always
are with each other
and everything in life —
a love that both holds and let go?
(inspired by Stephen Dunn’s poem Wind in a Jar)
