Life With Horace

poetry & essays

the journey to now

the journey to now

the journey to now
crept some and halted
changed its direction
began all alone

not life’s journey
or passage,
this was smaller
more precious
the search for my soul

starting from standstill
to look fiercely at life
with eyes of have-not-yet
rushing out headlong

to feel, see, be open
while all the outpouring
the testing, outreaching
went shooting like light beams
away from my essence

my soul waited, safe cradled
for the time of returning
the look without flinching
in the mirror of truth

my first stab at poetry. (note on 5/25/2016: edited into stanzas today. Will sit with this a while.)
