Choices

 

I entered from the court-yard

and immediately saw the

spiral stair case leading upward

 

It was now or never

the choice was mine

and mine alone

turn around and leave

or…

see what was waiting

for me at the top of

that beautiful staircase

 

Was fate or fortune

waiting there?

With shaking legs

I began the climb

 

Reaching the top

all I can do is

SMILE …

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 …

Shades of Grey

Shades of Grey

Some say life is always

Black and White …

Good and evil …

Right or wrong …

Nothing in between

 

I seek a balance

Because of this choice

some claim it is

avoidance …

living in shades of

Grey …

 

For me this is  a

CHOICE …

I look at things as

they come …

individually …

not as a universal whole

never putting things…

events…

actions…

people…

into specific slots

But … seeing the big picture

because of the difference

because of the

Shades of Grey …

Work Alarm! – Day 9 April PAD

7 Comments

Work Alarm!

The best part

of the day…

Not having to

wake up to

an alarm anymore

 

I did my time…

Paid my dues…

So…

This is my REWARD…

 

Retired…

Yet…

I still work

On my own terms…

My own time…

in my PJ’s

if I choose

 

But…

 

No more alarms

Unless I choose…

*RAGE…

*RAGE…

There comes a time
for all of us toward
the end of our time
to decide…
Do we hang on
and fight…rage
 
Or…
 
Do we let go
gracefully…
willingly…
accepting…
what the fates
have in store
the inevitable…
 
My decision is
not clear…
Will I rage at
the end
 
Or…
 
Will I turn my
eyes to the light
and go willingly…
peacefully…
joyfully…
with a smile 
on my face
