Weathering

I don’t believe in promises, they were meant to be broken. I believe in the soul’s ability to love despite all odds.

When my youngest son Austin noticed my lack of writing this month, he very sweetly made me a “poem wall” to help me keep track of the new poems I write and help me remember to write more. Tonight I jotted two down two at his urging. This little ditty is one of them….

Upon the stars
I swing between
chasing things
and catching dreams

Moving On

Moving On

Move on like you don’t have a past –
as if every decision made
in the grand scheme of things,
no longer matters.
Treat yesterday as a memory
from a book read beneath a tree
in the height of a lazy summer.

Move on like you don’t have a future –
as if every plan you ever made
has been sent back to the drawing board
of your dreams.
Lift your pen and write the words
waiting to be said and lived.
This is moving on.

~ Nikki Anne Schmutz

The past month has brought irrevocable change to my life. I don’t see any other way to move forward except to reconfigure everything I thought I knew. So here I go… pen of my soul back to the drawing board.
