New Beginnings

New Beginnings

I looked at the sky this morning.
Clear and cloudless and blue,
And the morning chorus filled the air
With the promise of life anew.

I knew my grieving was over.
My life, as it was, is gone.
And I have taken back my power –
To be true to myself again.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    • So true, Lyndatjie! We lose ourselves over time until we get a wake-up call! (A corner of my front garden that is looking quite striking at the moment and I just love pampas grass when it flowers *sneezes*!)
