Threshold/Story Line

 Threshold/Story Line

Chiffon clouds veil the sun
teasing light and shadows
upon brown prairie blade
as year is at its threshold

Seductive memories jiggle about
to catch my eye
and thus beauty of life
remembered in each inhale and exhale.

Of God's goodness
as our children find love
watching them grow
in maturity and giving of themselves

Of remembering pain
of failing my lover
seeing the ache in
her mocha eyes

Of learning how to
stay present when all I knew
was to disassociate
the way I ran

Of those brought in my path
to stretch and grow me
to challenge the story I believed
and offer a Godly perspective that
alters my story line
