Eyes open

The dust settles as the wind dies down

Silence echo’s off my page

Searching for words, nothing seems to want to come out

Something has changed, the tone, the shape, the colour of life

Everything looks different now

I look back and see the path travelled

With numerous twists and turns

All bringing me till now

I have been here before, a familiar, welcomed unknown

There is no fear, no worry, no urgency

Just flow and grace in each step

An openness to what ever needs to come

Freedom speaks through each word

Pondering the life I’ve been given and paths I’ve chosen to go

I have grown so much

A multitude of lessons have been learnt

I turn to face my future, eyes of open possibility

Show many roads lay ahead

Standing here, I wonder which path to take

I go back to my page now filled with words,

Trusting life to show the way.
