poem- something new April 27, 2017

There is something new in the air

A faint scent of possibility

that wafts past unexpectedly.

There is something making me

wonder about continuity

and what’s coming to be.

You open up before me

a gulf of possibility

things I never considered

complications I did not foresee.

You open up before me

a black hole of opportunity

devouring expectations

creating alternative realities

of what my future might be.

dripping with irony.)

Will I choose you?

Or you?

Or will I choose at all?

Am I ready for this work

of nurturing potential?

My world is wound tightly

with possibility,

fighting emotionality with

rationality.

Even not

deciding

is a

decision.
