~    ~    ~    ~


There are moments
that take my breath away
in surprise,
delicious, fleeting joy
gone so quickly
I can’t recapture

There are moments
that stick with me
well beyond the time
I want them,
but they are etched reminders
for future days.

There are moments
I cling to and push away
all at once,
for they hold times
and people
I’ve lost
but can’t let go.

There are moments
so still
I’m afraid to breathe,
as it might break
the spell,
and I’d never see
the next,
never know
the secret.

Starting Over

~ ~ ~ ~ 
Starting Over 

I am starting over
as I started over
many times before.
I am starting over
every day
as I find new facets,
undiscovered till now.
I am starting over,
not so much looking for who I am or
what to be,
but opening myself
to any possibility.
I am starting over
not because I don’t like
who I am,
But because I’m excited
to know
who I can be.
Every changing,
ever growing,
always open,
I am starting over
