Peer outside the window of life,
walk through the door of mystery.
Seek not the things in reach,
how else would you touch life.
Dive into it's sweet and sour,
abandon the safe and the expected.
Walk through the thunderstorms of life,
armed with your honesty and grace.
Leave yesterday behind to live today.
good advice... beautifully written :)ReplyDelete
Seek not the things in reach...and leave yesterday behind ~ my two take away phrases from another beautiful post.ReplyDelete
amen...love this one...i am all about facing those thunderstorms and living today...ReplyDelete
one must be very brave to do this..esp. loved the last three lines...beautiful ayalaReplyDelete
It's so hard to abandon the safe and expected, at least for me. Always a challenge!ReplyDelete
I have a hard time remembering to embrace the sweet AND sour, especially in the moment. More sweetness, more sweetness, I think. Ah well, something more to learn.ReplyDelete
Like Melissa, I am always looking for more sweetness, but I love the way you put it here: Dive into the sweet and sour of life.ReplyDelete
Maybe diving into the sour is the only way to get past it.
This is such a delicious and delicate use of words an images. I love your way with words. Another great post ♥ReplyDelete

Melissa, we all want more sweetness but there is always both sweet and sour.ReplyDelete

We all must live for today as we never know when will be our last. Lovely poem.ReplyDelete
Love this. We all must reach for the unknown, take that leap of faith, if we hope to fully experience this life.ReplyDelete
