Today I decided that I would make an attempt at writing a blog for my website. Having been a writer in the past I thought that it may be a good idea even though it has been some time since I have put pen to paper. so here we are.
Therefore as my first post I would like to present a poem that I once wrote in the Hope that it will guide you to recognise that changes, seemingly with negative endings, may just be a reconstruction on your own life path bringing you to a place where you can, if need be, start over again and make an advancement towards an even more fulfilling life. From my own experience one can go through myriads of changes without even knowing that they are taking place.
As I gaze in wonderment upon the forest,
of such varying refreshing hues,
Adorned with fresh mist that seems to
whisper - Good News,
There resting upon a fan of fern,
preying mantis so elegant to be,
Great beauty so wondrous to see,
protector and decoy would be.
Beneath hangs a chrysalis
almost ready to unfold
in sense knows what is painted there
but only in Fan-fold.
On guard, the golden falcon
as time slips away
waits to swoop in rescue
not in deliverance of prey.
Imagine as the silks unwind
and the butterfly set free
the four winds come together
to form an uplifting breeze.
Should not all this joy and wonder
bring you to your knees.
Could this be
the opening to a New Beginning?
