Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Refurbishment

on September 10, 2018

To look at my present as possible past
Daunting endeavor, confusing at best
Then Aha! moment furnished direction
Live in the now! where else?

Standing in line at a ballyhooed art show
On my feet two hours at least
Energized by engagement I realized
My cane and I can go miles before rest

A present rich with much possibility
Brand new exploration if I open my eyes
Reach for new challenges from creative grab bag
Open doors not extensions of past

With curiosity checked-out travel offerings
Searching for something I had missed before
Discovered adventures focused on interests
Not only the aging seek learning in classrooms

And so next September I head for New Hampshire
To learn and to listen to sizzling Cool Jazz
Taking first step toward reimagination
Living into new perspectives on life

    Ahh, jazz. I miss it so. Having been a musician for most my life and been lucky enough to touch hearts. I can’t go back. My teeth, you see. I understand what you mean by moving forward.

    Your lines brought this to the fore:

    I’ve traveled so much but traveled so little.
    Looking back, a see short path with roses and thorns
    Looking forward, the long road disappears into the horizon.
    My walking stick is ready.
    My wings even more so.
    The choice is obvious.

    Something spontaneous. Your words have that effect on me, Ina dear.

    Peace,
    Eric
