Stepping off onto the path

Standing at the edge of the pathStepping off into the new -
never a truly clear path,
always an adventure.
Holding my breath
as though preparing to dive
into the clear, cool water.
And then the dive,
leaping into the air,
suspended,
silence,
the moment
before landing in the water.
Will it be a beautiful clean dive
or a bit of a splash
or a flat out belly flop.
Depends on the focus
and the intention
set in the beginning.
Depends on skill,
practice,
adherence to the path.
It's time to take
all those years of planning
and
make
something
beatiful and whole.
