Turn the page and start again

One foot in front of the other 

Our journey unknown as we tread 

like reading a novel, no sense of 

beginning or middle or end, so we step

cautiously on this path that lays ahead

~~~~~~~~~~~

memories of yellowed pages in a book once read

our lives were once like that but now we voice

farewell to what was frayed and erstwhile 

to corners that curled and smelt of damp

beginning a new chapter we rejoice

~~~~~~~~~~

goose pumps explode upon paled skin

unknowing what is down this path

or what our lives will bring

Excitement, gut in knots, flushed cheeks

accepting, learning, discovering 

~~~~~~~~~~

our own story we now embark upon

treading with inspired steps

the discarded pages of books all worn 

replaced with crisp untouched experience

~~~~~~~~~~~

one foot in front of the other

with eagerness to discover

we say goodbye to previous loves

and turn the new pages together

  1. It has somewhat, shoosh about the turkeys you 😉 and I thank you ROS that means a lot coming from such an accomplished writer as yourself 🙂 My vocab lacks sadly 😦 even with the years I have been writing .. but then I feel sometimes ‘big’ words aren’t necessary to portray what you are trying to say.
