So many corners to turn
I yearn to know
which way to go
left might be right
but my sight is blurry
as my heart is hurting
and the road is
I long for
that green meadow
dotted with flowers
to ease my thoughts
for bees and
to make me smile
I haven’t smiled
remains in knots
I’m not one to dwell
on the impossible
yet, I’ve run into
a brick wall
It’s very tall
and climbing walls
has never been
is as good as any

“but now is as good as any to begin again” That’s the spirit ^^
I had to add some hope at the end! Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
Beautiful ode to a new beginning, Lauren! 🙂
Thanks so much, Marina, and have a lovely weekend! xx
We must always look for the silver lining in everything. God does not close door on those who love him without opening up another.
Have a great weekend, Lauren!
Sending you much love and hugs! xxx
Very true, Deb, and this is fiction, just so you know…but words I’m sure many can relate to…have a great weekend, too, and sending you love and hugs back! xoxo
Oh yes, turning and trying to find our way through! You describe the feelings so well, Lauren.
Thanks very much, Christy, and you understood perfectly, too! Hugs and wishing you a happy weekend!
There has to always be determination and hope at the end…thanks for stopping by, Chatty, and I’m now following you on SoundCloud, too! 🙂 I’ve tried a few audios and am having fun!
I just saw! Oh lady, your voice is superb!
Thanks for following, Chatty! You’re the expert audio, so I appreciate your encouragement! 🙂
Lauren, you did it again; you inspired another poem. Happy writing!
Aww…I’m glad, Sandy, and let me know when you write it because WP isn’t giving me notifications for everyone…it’s a mess and I feel I’m missing so many posts! Anyway, I’ll visit you soon, though! 🙂
Yes, now is as good a time as any, to get started
Peace and luv,
It started out a little dark, but I couldn’t end it without some hope…it’s fiction, Eric, but words I think many can relate to…thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! 🙂
Love it Lauren and love the photo as well. Happy Sunday my friend. hugs. ♥
Thanks so much, Renee, and have a wonderful Sunday, too! Many hugs to you! ♥
You’re so welcome my friend. ♥
That is inspirational indeed.
What jumps out at me are your closing lines, and I quote:
is as good as any
As we shift out perspective to the possibilities that exist in the “here & now”, we see new intentions and energy showing up.
Thanks so much, Shakti, and I agree with your last paragraph, too…living in the here and now, being able to see new possibilities and intentions to move forward. I also didn’t want to end it in a hopeless way, so I’m glad the inspiration caught your eye! 🙂
If you wrote this identical poem out in paragraph form, the way you have written is a perfect haibun. You’d just have to add the haiku, Lauren! Just saying, my very talented friend! 🙂 xo
Hmmm…I’ll have to read exactly what a haibun is again, Penny, but thank you! You’re the “form” expert! I’ve only written haiku and tanka. Even now, looking back, I don’t think some or most of my old haiku were written correctly. I had the right syllables, etc, but I don’t think the sentence structure was right…oh well. I think I have a better understanding now or at least I hope so! 🙂 Thanks for your complement, my friend! Hugs! xo
I’m still working on simplifying (from what others write – including myself) the process, Lauren. Truly the haibun is a few paragraphs of thoughtful expression where it is through the use, placement and power of words that the piece becomes reflective and perhaps insightful. (true for haiku as well) dear friend – in the nutshell of things, a little bit of form and a lot more about word usage! 🙂 hugs xo
