Landscape of life …

In response to Daily Prompt – Wednesday – Anticipate

Gascoyne region, Western Australia

In that moment when time stood still
I travelled the landscape of life
arriving at youth
where courage and dreams were intertwined
I stayed for a while
in that sanctuary
where life flowed seamlessly
in the child-woman in me
I walked across the water
reflective as glass effortlessly,
as if, on solid ground
I caught my breath
at the junction of the unexpected,
when truth, like lightening,
blazed light all around
the ride into womanhood
was filled with anticipation
for dreams, yet unfulfilled
and in that moment of stillness
my vision less bedazzled,
in a backward glance,
filled with trepidation, found,
the balance was in my favour
I had more than I had lost
youth may have been short and sweet
but to my delight,
flanked by dares
the road ahead is longer.

I’m trying to get back to where I used to be and today seemed like a good day to start.

My wish for you is that you find the starting point, the beginning of anything, is exactly where you are.

Until next time

As always
