PATRON SAINT OF ABUNDANCE

Tumbling towards potential dismemberment
The relevance of control ceases to matter
Lurching headfirst into a disorientating carousel of landscape and sky
Moments before
Sitting serene on snowy perch
Mesmerised in frosted arena
Suddenly slid from zenith
How can such juxtapositions inhabit reality?
Serenity one second
Tumbling torment the next
Proof that chronology is futile?
Or a botched editing job from upstairs 
A glitch in the hologram?
Two moments, two choices
The first: Panic
Result: Cracked bones on rocks
The second choice: Relaxation
Trust that life continues
Regardless of whether knee and thighbone are connected
And then stillness, an inexplicable halt
The evaporation of polarity
A temporary shunt into pure balance
Suddenly motionless with all limbs intact
Somehow
Fifty metres from the summit
The gratitude to be alive, in one piece
As exquisite as it is unbelievable
The Patron Saint of Abundance visits those that dive off mountains
And then trust 
One would expect a gluttonous figure weighed by excess
But this patron saint is almost emaciated
Stripped back for it trusts that abundance is always here
Especially when appearances deceive
With gaping-eyed wonder, this figure asks but one question:
How committed are you to leaping after what you truly believe
And then letting it all go?
