Can't Put the Pen Down…


Something is happening.
A beginning where I thought only endings lived.
An awakening from a long troubled sleep.
A quickening of synapses.
It is a moment to be seized,
an opportunity to be exploited
so don’t be surprised
if my goals and attitudes change
course. You are still
my oars and anchor,
my lodestone,
the star by which I steer,
my travelling partner of choice

    I like this poem, particularly as the circumstances behind this exciting life-change are ambiguous. I would relate it to somebody who has retired, but it could also be someone who’s had a spiritual revelation or someone who has recovered from a serious illness and seen life in a new perspective, perhaps? What reinforces the uplifting nature of the poem is the fact that this exciting journey is to be shared with a loyal loved-one. A real feelgood piece.
