A NEW WAY
MY 2021 POEM: WHAT IS YOURS?
To speak is like the wings of a butterfly with the flutter of my words.
Significance is brought forth with uttering the longing my soul.
Fire breaks forth from the amber of my song. Tirelessly pursuing desire.
Belonging to the wind with a breath of life.
To go forward with resistance at every angle.
What lights up my spirit to inhale?
Belong, to belong is at the helm of greatness.
Trees dance, birds sing, deer leap, into the night. Before the day, I reminisce. Laughter brings a cloak.
Cover the longing to patiently create. Delay, no more delay, the poet declared.
What has long been buried is now revealed.
Twinkling with the fireworks of my soul. Writing, thinking, contemplating, praying.
Connect, connect with God. Find Him in the path. He is there. I find solace in pain, for the hope will remain.
Another year has gone with another soon to begin. Fight forth into the realm.
Color of love, heart pangs of sorrow, free as a dove. I ride into the future with a happy eagle and soar.
The clouds by my side bring a mist to the air.
I do not know what to expect. The best is yet to occur.
Perhaps disappointment will remain with freedom of expression to circulate the pain.
Free the path ahead. Say hello to new beginning. Feel the force propelling me forth. Joy comes in the morning and weeping for the night.
I know everything will be alright.
