Seemingly out of reach, but surprisingly not.
You just have to learn to climb trees
and when the branches get this thin,
and you know they won't support you,
you gotta reach.
It may be a long stretch,
you may need to hold it,
breathe it into it.
The yoga of living.
And when you get there,
what do they tell you?
tell the truth
It has been a year of unfurling.
2010 nears, a new word to be chosen.
This word turns out to be important.
Who'd'a thought it?
The dictionary beckons,
or books of poetry.
The New Year's word.
Waiting for me to know it when I see it.
Have you chosen?
What will your word summon for the year?
What power will you give yourself?
Baby steps or giant strides?
I am climbing a tree
and building a nest.
The word is in that tree,
I am off.
I'll let you know when I find it.
is it a verb this year, or a noun?
