World Poetry Day

Apologies for this post’s delay…Pax and I had the dickens of a time acquiring an acceptable photo from various website collections…which proves the adage: “If you want something done right, do it yourself”😊 

*♥♥♥*

For all poet-souls ~

Before day, world, succumb to

Myriad malaise

Let me hold you, near and far

Embrace, bless your beating hearts

I keep you in prayers

Frequent, faithfully fervent

That no ill harm you…

All you endeavor, prosper…

May we meet ‘neath poem-filled skies

“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” Sir Edmund Hilary

Allowing Ourselves

Changing our relationship with the past,
refusing to keep it alive in the present,
the embers of yesterday are passing,
allowing ourselves to dwell in possibility.

Refusing to keep it alive in the present,
not letting the incomplete shape us,
allowing ourselves to dwell in possibility,
accepting the strange value of ambiguity.

Not letting the incomplete shape us,
stepping back from self-defeat and doubt,
accepting the strange value of ambiguity,
creatively embracing silent imperfections.

Stepping back from self-defeat and doubt,
the embers of yesterday are passing,
creatively embracing silent imperfections,
changing our relationship with the past.
