Crossroads

 

Running hell-bent for leather

in the driving rain I stopped

suddenly when faced with not

one shift in the road…

but several

 

Moving wet hair from my

eyes I realized what was

before me … not just any

Crossroads

But …

Roads running in four

directions …

Creating a star of

sorts …

Meaning more than

a usual decision

what was before me

was life changing …

No Grudges…

No Grudges

No Grudges…

I have come to a point in

my life where moving on

seems to me the norm

rather than the exception

 

I have grown and changed,

different interests,

what once was important

I now realize were distractions

 

No regrets …

I have simply outgrown those

people…

activities…

thoughts…

that once controlled me

 

I realized I do not want

or need to be controlled

I want to be me

Do, feel, and say what

is important to me

not someone who could

care less about me and

my feelings…

my wants…

my desires…

my needs…

 

There are no regrets

and most important

of all …

There are no grudges

 

A former boss and a

former boyfriend both

had this motto:

“I don’t get mad …

I get even” …

For me I just not

longer care about

what once seemed

important

People who only were

available when they

wanted something

therefore …

my growing…

my moving on…

was because they and

their presence became

irrelevant in my life…

Tonight…

Smiling down on me

through a thin mist veil

cuddling it in the

Western sky is my

old friend the Moon…

 

A cool Autumn night

that has that true

feel of fall in the air

 

Changes…

 

New things showing

themselves daily…

Changes

Tonight…

Smiling down on me

through a thinly veiled

mist

Hanging low cuddled

in the western sky

is the ever-growing

Moon

 

A cool October

night giving the

true feeling of

fall in the air

 

Changes…

 

New things showing

themselves daily…

Changes

I am not who

I once was …

not the person

I was yesterday…

last week…

last month…

Or even

last year…

 

My life has gone

through stages

of change on a

regular basis

But…

Recently a series

of events, people,

and even books

read have led me

to reflections…

re-evaluations…

And…

determination…

to make deliberate

and purposeful

changes just for

myself…

 

Good…

Bad…

Indifferent…

Only time

will tell…

 

I can only

depend on me

Take care of

myself

And …

Take that blind

step into the future…

The Game

Leave a comment

The Game

Make up your mind

Either go all in

or Fold

Time to get serious

and play the

hand you’re

dealt

 

If not …

It is time for

me to look

for a new

game and

a fresh deck…

Retrograde

Leave a comment

Retrograde

The full Moon’s

Radiance has

always been

welcome to me

 

But…

 

The pull of this

full Moon …

held more power

fueled by Mercury

in Retrograde

 

Not just a double

whammy but for

me it felt like

a triple

 

Tempers were short

Emotions high

Bad deeds revealed

Hurt…

Pain…

Betrayal…

Crushing sadness…

 

And…

Unbelievable

exhaustion…

I slept for days

in four-hour cycles

And…

still my bed

called me…

beckoned me to

crawl under the

covers and escape

 

Things are turning

But…

a predicted lingering

shadow for the

next two weeks

has me concerned

Ghosts…

Leave a comment

Ghosts…

You showed up

out of the blue

today…

Uninvited…

Unannounced…

After months of

no contact…

Not a phone call…

email…

text…

And…

expected to waltz

right into my life

as though nothing

had happened…

as though you just

left yesterday and

had not been

gone for months

 

I am not the same

person you left…

ignored…

abandoned…

for months on end

You may or may not

be welcomed back

into my life

And…

if then…

Only on

MY TERMS…

Universal Shift – Day 12 April PAD

Leave a comment

Universal Shift

According to the Ancients

our Earth had a polar shift…

a wobble…

that put everything

just slightly off

Not enough to

feel physically

like an earthquake

But…

enough for the

sensitivities to know

things are just

not quite right

The Earth warming…

Glaciers melting…

More snow here…

Not enough there…

Drought devastation

And…

Damaging floods…

Shorelines changing

higher here…lower there

Things are drifting in

ways they never have

in the past

Life as we know it

is changing…

Environments…

Seasons…

Even the hearts,

minds and souls

of people

Can we survive

this damage?

Day 12 of the April PAD Challenge – today’s prompt was to write “a damage poem”.

Dropping By…

Dropping By…

My dad dropped

by tonight…

Oh, not in person

mind you

he left this realm

the summer of 1989

 

He always visits when

something important

has happened…

will happen…

or…

I have a major

life decision to make

 

He drops by as a

shooting star in the

Eastern Sky

Usually just before dawn

But…

Tonight…

Just after dark

 

I went through a

personal life change

the past few days

His appearance told

me that I made the

right decision

 

As he has done in

the past when there

have been other life

changing events

He gives me his

blessing in the Stars…
