Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 2.12

The Question

At this time in my life

I answer to no one but me

The only thing stopping me

is me from doing anything

I owe no allegiances to others

I follow my own rules …

My own life

The only things stopping

me from certain things

is the knowledge that

I might cause emotional

pain to another

But …

There will come a time

when all will be revealed

regardless of who might

be hurt in the process

I must do what is

right for me…

best for me…

and not worry about

anyone else …

Question Answered …

Freedom

When we reach a certain age

life allows us to have a new

measure of Freedom

 

Freedom to do and say

as we please and not

care one whit what

anyone thinks

 

Freedom to do and be

exactly who we want

 

Freedom to enjoy life

in any way possible

Allowing us to be

spontaneous and

damn the consequences

 

Freedom to take each

day as it comes and

act/react to any and all

opportunities as they arise

 

Take time to smell the roses

Or …

Go skinny dipping in

the middle of the day

Live life to the fullest …

Always …

Bridges

Bridges have been in my life

all my life

I love them and some of my

fondest memories are the

bridges my father built

during my childhood

So many different ones …

Cement …

Steel …

Suspension …

Swinging …

Long …

Short …

All have their own stories

as I have my stories

with them …

Perhaps one day I will

write about

‘Bridges I Have Known’

Transforming

We all are in stages of change

Transforming…

Becoming…

Doing…

Being…

It is not always easy

Yet …

Something as simple

as a walk in the woods

watching a sunset or sunrise …

moonlight and stars

connecting with nature …

or …

one of nature’s creatures

so we realize we are only

a tiny piece of something

so much bigger than ourselves

… and healing can begin

Remembering

Days like today

I think of you

Remembering …

The good times

and …

The bad

 

I still at odd times

think of you when

I find something I

know you would enjoy

yet …

I no longer can share

anything with you

That was your choice

… not mine

One day the truth

will be known

but …

I never expect you

to believe…

to understand…

or to care…

because …

you never acknowledge

or accept your mistakes

Autumn Delight

Autumn Delight

The universe gives us gifts

should we choose to pay attention

Each and every season has unique

and rare gifts to share

But…

The gifts of Autumn are the

most special to me

Jeweled toned leaves that

change the view daily are

are not only a constant

but amazing delight to me

Like an ever-changing

panoramic slide show

giving me awe and wonder

in their brilliant colors

Even after they begin to

fall and blanket the ground

and road ways their

brilliance continues …

Poet David Whyte said it best:

“… a shimmering bed of

dry leaves …”

Inviting the child in me

to pile them up and enjoy

the fun of falling into

a pile of nature’s jewels …

The Candle

The Candle

The weather turned not quite cold

but wet and chilly, blustery my Mom would say

Reading in my favorite chair by the window

I added a single white taper to my side table

Not warming, but causing a more cozy feeling

as I continued to read

 

The flickering light began to make me sleepy

as I stopped reading and found myself

drawn to that single flame

I must have dozed because the next thing

I knew it was dark outside and the flame

reflected in the window

 

Looking around things were different

My house …

My room …

But different

Everything appeared a wavy reflection

as I looked across the room

The clock was not in its normal place

and the time didn’t seem to be correct

 

A whispered voice called to me

Telling me that time shifted and to

go with the flow …

Enjoy the peacefulness of the

golden candle light until

time shifts once again

I was told …

When the shift happened

I was returned to my world …

My reality …

 

A sudden chill ran through me

and looking around everything

had returned to normal …

Yet …

Things were not the same

And …

Never would be again …

Morning Clouds

Morning Clouds

Autumn in Central Texas

and the predawn clouds

had a feel of being at the

beach at sunrise as they

rushed from southwest

to northeast a bit dark

and menacing

 

My thoughts turned to

the past and early

morning walks along

the beach listening

to waves crash

waiting for sunrise

as clouds rushed along

the horizon

 

Turning toward home

I sigh and wonder when

I will get that beach time

again … if ever …
