(I was challenged to find the joy by a friend, “Take Light” here on my blog… here is my first stab at it! Please be kind… I have been stuck in yesterday for far too long! Thanks! I needed that kick in the butt!)
I thought I’d use the metaphor of jogging to start exercising my heart and preparing it for the joy I plan to round up!
Like tying my shoes before a run,
imagining how I’ll feel when I’m done~
I walk out the door with my ipod on,
facing the chill as my eyes kiss the dawn~
first, I start to walk slowly and then pick up speed,
knowing that this very moment, is all that I need~
Words dance through my head and into my heart,
realizing this is the way to make the words start~
This writing hiatus that I have been on,
was all stuck in my past and now released in my dawn~
