a birthday poem?

Another year of challenges
When did it start,
When did it end?
Somehow those times
Simply seem to blend

Trials of the heart,
The head,
Sharing a space,
Sharing a bed.

Saying goodbye to an intimacy
Which transformed into
Something new and wonderful
After a bump or two…

New creative twists
Reinvention, re-ignition
Rediscovering sense of self
And still pondering
Just exactly what is
Truly calling me.

Winter solitude
Space to breathe
To think and feel
To evolve and integrate.

Snow melts
Claret cups bulge
The readiness of spring
And new opportunities
Rising forth from winter rest
Excitement coursing through veins
Facing trials with courage
With love and compassion

Ready to face
Whatever comes
Whatever will be
With an open heart and mind.

Bring it on.
