Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Starting Over (posted by Susan)
Write a new poem in which you sing of starting over. Or call it by its other names: reboot, renew, recommence, take two, going back to the drawing board, etc.
“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.”
“The beginning is always today.”
Wash that blue out of my heart,
send anxiety on a trip.
Shower me with sunflowers,
water and warmth will grow
a genuine smile–turn up my lips.
Old year is gone, though not all grief,
but depression is boring,
draining both body and mind.
I must stop my tears, look ahead
to one shining red leaf, my mooring.
