Reinventing Yourself   2 comments

Is it time to split your seams, step out of your skin
pump bold blood into fragile fresh wings?
This, the season of zest and song, could be your moment
for courageous pause, to unzip hard coats
that pinch your soul
and soar beyond thin rootbound worlds.

OSU pillars and walkway

 

Fragrance of rain-bruised azaleas on this side, a row of ripening elms beyond.

A petal drops, the hardy elms wave.  Do I hesitate & wait, it’s still not late, or

hasten through the unkept gate before my boots turn to stone

while I drowse in cozy comfort of what I think I know?

Where’s the gatekeeper? Who will be my ferryman?

Even when stuck on this cusp, I know, of course, they are me.

Cabin Lake at sundown

Locusts and pine jays
Their wings scrape the smoky air
Slowly, the red sun

There is still time
to touch some radiance
and taste the stars

Grace . . . full, flawed, frozen
at the seams thawing, melting
threaded thresholds
