Dancing Upon The Spring Breeze

Upon the spring breeze
Birds dancing gracefully skyward
The sunlit swallow

Memories Unbidden 

Edvard Munch's
Edvard Munch’s “Melancholy”

Memories come
Unbidden

Ghosts of my youth
Painful moments

Choices I’ve made
But not understood

There’s wisdom there
Not just misery

Forgive the boy
That I was

And see inside
My heart

Now I understand
My internalized mind

Echoes of fears and failures
This early spring morn

Listening to Fear

Fear has great wisdom
Face it boldly and head-on
Always stay mindful

This is a profound challenge for me. I do not like the sensation of fear. Yet I know it’s a required sensation for growth. 

As we push ourselves outside our “comfort zone”,  fear holds sway. Listen to it, see what it’s trying to say, look for truth. Is there something real to be afraid of, or is it the unknown, the simple possibility of failure? When you’ve done such, answers tend you be intuitively obvious. 

A Good Morning Haiku For You 

Sunlight’s debuting
Early morning darkness fades
Sounds of spring arise 


Watching the dawn inch forward inspired this haiku. I anthropomorphise the sun, imagining pride and delight as humanity stirs underneath the reborn warmth. Perhaps there’s even love for us as we reawaken our striving. 

So, here’s to a new day, it’s blessed possibilities, and all the potential you bring.
