Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Tipping Point

on March 23, 2015

The vast terrain of what’s gone before me
Wearies exceedingly my memory-stuffed mind.
I’m tired of thinking, expecting new futures.
Give me the simplicity to enjoy today.

My life is changing. I savor new spices.
Attuned to new rhythms I choose different dances.
Fresh questions and puzzles appear to be dealt with.
Strange how promise-filled it is to move on.

    All is great! When I got back from my trip the snow was gone. It was in the 20’s today but lots of sun. I hope all is well with you. ❤

    A beautiful piece about change. Sometimes all we need is a change of scenery. Love it !

  4. A lovely poem about the freedom of moving on.

  5. A great sense of freedom rises from these word , freedom is good , one can spend far too long chained in the past and there really is no way of changing it , the most intelligent thing to do would be to move on and taste those new spices ; lovely poem about the advantages of moving forward unleashed from the chains of the past , now all I need is the courage to use the key .Keep writing Viv your words give much courage. Kathy.

      I’m glad my words give you courage. I think you would like my new exploration into a book of blessings arising from Celtic spirituality. Your comment gives me encouragement to post about it. Thanks.

      • ah how beautiful , have you ever read dear John O’donohues books they are so beautiful full of celtic wisdom my favourite is Anam Cara , I met him about 2 years before his untimely death a lovely man , I still feel an aching sadness that his life was cut so short . I am so looking forward to your posts on Celtic Spirituality , a gentle soul full of courage is what your writing speaks to me , if you lived nearer I would gift you some of his books I think you would like the way he spoke of our souls and their mystic journeys. Kindest regards Kathy. xxx

    Kathy, I am a-tingle with goose bumps. The book I’m reading is John O’Donohue’s To Bless the Space Between Us. A man on my Costa Rica trip told me about the book when I told him that a friend’s definition of God is “the space between two people”, which is now mine also. He showed me his copy of the book. After reading only one blessing I knew O’Donohue is speaking from the same deep place I’ve stumbled into. I want to read Anam Cara. I plan to write about how my eyes are being opened to the new beginning in my soul’s journey. I think I am a “gentle soul” as you say. I’ve long felt that God deals gently with me in the changes of my life. ❤
