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 …

Changes

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…

LEAVING… April PAD 4

Leave a comment

Leaving…

Turning away

I never looked back

It was time…

Way past time

To go

Life had not

Been good for

A very long time

Enough…

Time to reclaim

My lost soul

The only way

To find me again

To reclaim my Soul

Was to walk away

Never look back

Never remember

Just…

LEAVE

Dropping By…

6 Comments

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…

Decisions

2 Comments

Decisions

Made some decisions

today after thinking

all night long

 

Sometime it just

isn’t worth it to

deal with people

who are unable

to share a vision…

dream a dream…

And…

make things happen

 

So…

for me …

I will go my own way

do my own thing

follow my own dreams

And…

restructure the foundation

for MY future

And leave those others

to flounder in the dark

 

I have set new goals

to put me on the way

to a much brighter

FUTURE…

Decisions…

Decisions…

A new year…

New ideas…

New plans…

And…

Decisions to be made

to create what I need

for ME

 

No longer will I put

others first

their needs…

their wants…

their desires…

are no longer

my concern

 

The only person

I can depend upon

is ME

*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

Magic Window

Magic Window

In my mind’s eye
I see from the window
a busy street
and busier people
 
All rushing somewhere
A constant flow of
interest and entertainment
for my early morning musing
Each with a fascinating
story to tell
 
She is on the way
to a new job…
her dream job…
He is dressed like
a successful businessman…
Yet…
Has been looking 
over a year for a job
What happened there?
 
The timer goes off
And…
the scene before me
changes…
The view outside my window
is my own backyard
Cats lounging on the patio…
Mr. Baby (a neighborhood dog)
strolling through on his morning rounds
being ignored by the cats
 
Returning to my view
with tea-cup in hand…
My hand twitches
and I decide to write
the man’s story…
A sad one…
But… much more interesting
 
My office window 
reminds me of childhood
and Miss Francis on TV
with her magic mirror
 
The Writing Begins…
