Not a Bad Year to Be Born

So my life started
Making sense to me at the
Age of seventy.

Back to the Oldest Days

How does something like
Terror feel when you don’t have
Any words for it?

You don’t need to [blank]
Because it makes no difference
In your life today.

First Lady Slipper
Comes. Spring again. My heart is
Filled with gratitude.

What Was Necessary Then, Isn’t Now

I don’t have to be
In denial to open
I can see clearly.

Finally Leaving “Home”

So we walk away
Together. I hold your hand
And we look ahead.

I’m challenging myself to finish the book I am currently reading (The Night Watchman – Louise Erdrich) and then keep up with my friend in her Cozy Burrow by reading the books short-listed for the Women’s prize.

Wish me luck as there’s a new puppy at our house. However the Cozy Burrow includes 3 young children, so I really don’t see that I have any excuses!

Avoiding Old Ruts

You don’t have to hold
An opinion. Just observe
And work with your stuff.

Now THAT Makes Sense

If my Inner Child
Hears me sound like my mother
How can she trust me?

Letting Go, Really…

Criticism is
One way that I re-attach.
Compassion helps me.
