New Direction


Turbulent waves crash

on the shores

of paradise

Rhythmically chanting

a familiar mantra

Turn back

Turn back


Intermittent flashes

of misguided intentions

wind through awareness

like a venomous snake

shedding its skin

as dripping fangs prepare

to pierce tender flesh


Alone on that

beautiful beach

Bathed in the light

of the dying sun

She wraps

trembling arms around

her exhausted body


Deja vu

Deja vu

May seem doomed

to repeat the past

Recalling lessons learned

motivation manifests


On the precipice

of carefully weighed options

the shimmering moon

inspires a new reality

while damp footprints

leave the shore

to walk a new path
