Moving…still

Into the distance
Journey limited
Only by the fear
That holds the soul still.
Lines run parallel
Like lives and minutes
Movement halted
If insecurity derails.
The quest of the now
Not tomorrow nor past
Fills the calm breeze that blows
Into the sails of dreams.
And the pioneer learns
To guide course by the stars
And by the heart that has tread
These steps a thousand times before.
A new map is drawn
Destination unknown
But getting there will happen
If the mind stays secure.
Go follow that light
Through the dark days and nights
That leave you feeling lost and alone
It shall always lead you home.

Thoughts on finding out an acquaintance passed away and once more realizing the need to follow what you feel to be the right path on your journey, letting nothing stand in your way.

  2. Thank you Elouise, there’s been a lot of loss lately but I am learning to deal effectively with it. Feel the emotion and let it pass. Wee are all on a journey and as the going says no one gets out alive, just temporary beings on the big blue marble…thank you and enjoying your marriage series too😊🌼🐝peace and blessings Kim 💜

  3. It’s so sad when we lose old acquaintances. And yet…it opens up images and thoughts that reach beyond, attempts to gain perspective. The kind I sometimes let sleep inside–without discovery or expression. The poem is lovely. For all of us making this journey.
