      For New Beginnings

      in out-of-the-way places of the heart,
      where your thoughts never think to wander,
      this beginning has been quietly forming,
      waiting until you were ready to emergy

      for a long time it has watched your desire,
      feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
      noticing how you willed yourself on,
      still unable to leave what you had outgrown

      it watched you play with the seduction of safety
      and the grey promises that sameness whispered,
      heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
      wondered would you always live like this

      then the delight, when your courage kindled,
      and out you stepped onto new ground,
      your eyes young again with energy and ream,
      a path of plenitude opening before you

      though your destination is not yet clear
      you can trust the promise of this opening,
      unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
      that is at one with your life's desire

      awaken your spirit to adventure,
      hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk,
      soon you will be home in a new rhythm
      for your soul senses the world that awaits you
