Turning Pages

reading my life like a book
turning pages so fast it’s a blur
that makes my head spin
and scarcely gives me time to wonder
what just happened
to another year

chapter and verse
for better or worse
here I am

each page written is the last
one I can barely read with blurry eyes
yet what is around the bend
keeps me foraging and wondering
what is coming
with another year

chapter and verse
for better or worse
here I am

the story is of loss and love
and triumph and defeat so glorious
that the protagonist and antagonist
merge in a Gemini sort of way
standing together
to face a new year

chapter and verse
for better or worse
here I am

unfinished, the end is unwritten
and perhaps the climax is not past
as I wade for inspiration
in the lost and found of muses
turning the page
to this new year

chapter and verse
for better or worse
here I am

Happy New Year


Holidays

 

The most holy days
Are those spent
Being grateful for IMG_1711

Deep love
True friends
Long walks
Favorite memories
Raucous fun

The most holy days
Are those spent
Being present in

Every breath
Quiet moments
Meaningful work
Family traditions
Joyful celebration

The most holy days
Are those spent
Being open to

New ways
Old paths
Being loved
Giving grace
Living peacefully

The most holy day
Is the one you have
Today
