You don't know where you are going. You don't know how to get there. And you arrive just the same. Ghanaian saying

Brand New Day

on March 12, 2019

I chose this theme five years ago
Inky blue sky and far away planets
Daring new steps my inauguration
Quote on “About” gave me fair warning
Step into a river and do not expect
The same current twice

My river bore me along for a while
Waves of bright memories transformed into words
Poetry sprang singing from deep hidden well
Then drought drained inspiration
I’m back where I started but oddly ahead
Brand New Day once again.

    And we are so lucky that you do what you do…
    Beautifully done.

    Thanks, Dale. Without you and the Word Press community giving me feedback and encouragement I wouldn’t be set to paddle down a new river. Also without my children’s struggles that have enriched my life I wouldn’t have new chronicles to tell.

  3. I love reading your poetry. I think we all have times when inspiration disappears for a while.

  4. I’m so glad you’re here
