Sometimes I look upon past work and see a new perspective, a new meaning. And sometimes I cannot remember the person I was who wrote the poem or prose. It is someone who has made up a portion of who I am and I bring her to the work I read today. And I am all who I am, what I was and who I am becoming. That someone I become will surprise me I am sure.
There will be more differences noted not only the physical ones all see. The subtle changes may seem minute but large to me. Glimpses are given embracing memories long faded but now gaining form. Life lived with dedication to commitments leaves few regrets. And what were considered obstacles now become mountains that have been climbed successfully.
We are in the midst of a vast universe. Vast. And we are more than what we appear. Our connection to All That Is is real and wondrous. I bend at the knees easily. In Thanksgiving.
Because It Is. . .
You cannot dream things that never were
for in a sometime and a somewhere
they’ve taken place and left their indelible memory
on your mind.
Only to be remembered when a slim shadow
casts its spell across your life
and causes you to bring forth a relic,
a piece of the dream that had its substance
in a far time when love was pocketed
near your heart and brought forth to heal
a wound, to make life complete.
Never to question why or why not.
Simply because it is.
