Taking Flight

This poem is reblogged from JTran’s blog (reactiveness.wordpress.com). It’s such a simple poem, but for some reason it stuck with me for the whole day.

“Come to the edge, A said.
I’m afraid, B said.
Come to the edge, A said.
I’m afraid, B said.
Come to the edge, A said.
And B came to the edge.
Jump, A said.
And B jumped.
And B flew.”

JTran said she saw this poem in “Why Him? Why Her?” by Helen Fisher.

I think this poem relates not only to relationships, but life in general. Sometimes, we just have to learn how to let go. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Leave the lake, and you will discover the ocean.

The hummingbird is a symbol of joy and happiness in life. Did you know that their wings move in the shape of infinity (or the number 8)?

Where will your wings take you?
