A poem for our special day, December 15: Reflect, Project, Be

December 15, 2019 Leave a comment

Rosemary and I celebrate December 15 every year as a remembrance of an awakening we both had many years ago. It was a turning point for both of us. And inevitably, inexorably it was the beginning of now. Here is my poem to commemorate our “awakening” this year:

Reflect, Project, Be

A time to reflect on the past:
This is good.
Viewing where we have been
Informs.

A time to project on the future:
To cast a vision, set a path.
It may wander and veer, yet
The way ahead will clear with each step.

And a time to be:
To be here as two and one,
In shade and sun, moving in step
To the beat of one drum.

Listen for the spirit song
Humming along,
Calling, serenading, guiding
Us home, never alone!

Happy Awakening Day, dear. I love you!
