Newness

It's on the tip of your tongue
The warmth of your breath
Something has changed
You do not know it yet

Feel it deep within your soul
A fire so strong you have to grab hold
It will consume you they all cry out
Consume away you scream and shout

For life has meaning a purpose brand new
Something that crackles and spews
Sudden sparks of delicious through and through
Greatness was born out of love to improve.

Reflective Changes

Staring into the vast unknown
Feeling for a seed of growth
Not sure we're the tide pulls me now
Knowing for certain I are safe some how

Looking for it in your face
A gentle knowing, a warm embrace
Not sure if it was all a fake
Something you offered, something you take

Reflective changes I must make
Out to the vast unknown to create
A life newer than what you can take
Something for me, something to make

Grass should be greener
The laughter more pure
The changes I make now
Will lighten, strenghthen, help to ensure

Reflect on them, a little more
Am I really, really sure
Yes, it is right the time is now
Let me see how this unfolds some how

A Toast to New Beginnings

Although the day started out the same,
Like any other day.
It's new! It's new!
You chorus to me.
Embrace the day!
Let it be!
Think of it in all of its newness.
Celebrate the way that the day unfolds.
See the blessings, the opportunities, and magic.
Watch your eyes open wide.
For today is new,
And fill of surprise!

Embrace the day, and it's glorious unfolding.
See the deliciousness in every moment.
Toast the day!
To new beginnings!
Let's go celebrate!

Revived

She sat. Looking out across the lawn. In all actuality, she was not looking at anything. Blindly staring out across the lawn was more accurate. Meditating? Perhaps. Numb, might be more descriptive.

She could not believe what happened. Seconds before she left to go home. The whole world tipped upside down. Okay, maybe that was a stretch to say. Perhaps, a bit dramatic. Yet her world did change. In an instant. Bam. Changed.

She knew it was coming. All the signs were there, but she had no clue it would be today. Today. Today!

She pushed her hands through her hair in an effort to wrap her mind around the whole thing. She tried to focus her gaze on something real, it, the numbness, kept creeping in. Why would she be numb? It was perplexing.

This was the very thing she had been working towards.

Her dream had been realized!

Why was she numb? Yes, at first she was ecstatic! She even hugged Marty, who, perplexed and squirming, stammered out a “Congratulations.” Blushing profusely.

She might have to apologize to Marty for invading his space when she saw him tomorrow at the humane society. After all, he was only there by happenstance, when the call came through that she got the house.

THE house…

The one that whispered to her in her dreams. Yes, it was a material object, and in the grand scheme of things, it should not matter. Yet matter, it did. She loved the house! Something about it soothed her.

She breathed deeply. Expelling the numbness, and realizing that she did deserve this wondrous new beginning.

With a huge sigh of relief, accepting her fate would be entwined with this house, she stood up, walking into her home, intent to finish packing.

She was moving on!
