Although the name of this blog might give the impression it will be filled with positive and calming reading the reader may find this is not always the case. I make no apologies for this.

I believe experiencing the whole range of emotions, both those considered negative and those considered to be positive are a big part in what makes us human.
Acknowledging and expressing those feelings in an appropriate way makes us healthy humans.
You will find the gamut of emotions expressed in my works on this blog. I hope they encourage the reader to acknowledge their own feelings both positive and negative.

New Beginnings

My muse is still playing hard to get so I will continue to share some of my older works for now. New beginnings are something we all look forward to after a period of grieving. This poem was written at such a time in my life. I hope somebody else can relate.
New Beginnings

New beginnings
A blank page almost
Traces of the past
Linger like the delicate
Fragrance of blossom in spring

New beginnings
A gentle breeze
Softly blows the page bare
Once more a clean slate
Open to fresh imprints laid there

New beginnings
A journey begun anew
Fear and insecurity among
The feelings drifting through
As I contemplate what next to do

New beginnings
Resting quietly waiting
To see what destiny shall bring
What new joys in life to behold
Shared sadness, frustrations and more

New beginnings
Peace and stillness
Finally found their place
Open loving heart and open mind
Releasing energies to echo across the universe

New beginnings
What is meant to be
New life and loving to be shared
Footsteps gently tread into my heart
A tender stamp of affection left with love and care

New beginnings
Eyes wide open
Believing in what they see
What once seemed impossible
Allowing a new perspective and setting me free

  1. Truly lovely - how well I know that blank page feeling. A lovely piece of writing.

  2. Lovely poem Helen and fully agree with your opening statements - life is full of ups and downs, negatives and positives, it's just another lesson in life. How we deal with them is the most important factor I feel.
