I recently completed two writing courses that challenged me to dig a little deeper and explore areas and ideas I’d been afraid to attempt before now. This was very rewarding as I discovered a lot about myself and about my ability or talent, if you will, along the way. I’ve decided it is high time I get back to posting and maintaining my page. I’m going to begin by sharing a few pieces I developed during the course. I hope you enjoy them and if you don’t, I hope you’ll be kind as they were posted to share love, enlightenment and positive energy.
like a rug being yanked out
from beneath your firmly planted feet
sending you twisting and tumbling down
a long descent of stairs
When you come to rest
Will you lie there lifeless? Defeated?
Or will you spring to your feet
bounding up each step as if it were your first
marveling at the journey
refreshed by the beauty
of new choices?
so slowly and stealthily
nearly undetectable as it inches in
creeping up on you and swallowing you whole
before you realize nothing is the same
When you discover yourself
in a new landscape of mindset
will you kick and scream?
Will you close your eyes to it all?
The walls you built up seemed so strong
will they now crumble?
Or will you perch high a-top the walls of change
Embrace the vantage point
