Let It Go!

Forgive the hurt, release your pain

Embrace the here and now today

No looking back, without delay

Create your joy and then maintain

Harmony’s pleasing to attain

Have peace of mind around the clock

Euphoric state will be a shock

Decide to change your condition

Right here, right now, grant permission

Free the emotional gridlock

Post-pandemic Plans

Whenever this pandemic cease being that, I hope to find myself blogging from an island resort while stuffing my face, after being shoulder deep in a mud bath.

The Final Hour

softly she whispered

as her final hour had come,

she transitioned to

a place where pain and sadness

are gone, never to return.

My hope for tomorrow lies in my memories of the past.

This is a perspective I missed for all of 2020 and may continue to long for another year or two. There’s so much joy in waking up to beautiful sunshine in the morning, with the added bonus of the excitement of traveling someplace new.

morning sun shining

gives power to start over

someone, someplace new
