Twixt and Tween

The future's in a state of flux.

Possibilities dance in my thoughts
like distant galaxies
in the night sky.
Stars you can wish on,
but they offer no warmth.

I'm on the right path,
and coursing with strength.
I strut,
even in the face of uncertainty,
I'm all good.

So much that was wrong is now right again,
and I sigh with relief.

My compass is true,
and if I keep to my North,
it will be just fine.

I can taste the futures on the tip of my tongue,
without drinking too deep,
without sculling the full vessels,
without diving in blind,
without drowning in them.

With wisdom,
all will be right with my world.

  2. How good it will be to feel satisfied at the end of one's life...apart for wanting to to do a little bit more.

  3. Worrying about future takes its toll on present, just flow the current moments.

  7. I enjoyed the positive and optimistic tone of your poem. Like Vanadana, I know that worrying can spoil the moment and the moments to come.

  14. Fabulous...I especially loved
    'My compass is true,
    and if I keep to my North,

  15. This is so full of hope....and I especially like this part:
    "Possibilities dance in my thoughts
    like distant galaxies
    in the night sky."

    What a unique and gorgeous depiction you have painted with your words.

  19. I loved the sixth stanza. It resonates well with the reader, perhaps a bit of empathy too going in. Smiles.
