Starting Over

Don’t fill these empty spaces,
Leave them alone for the moment,
Close your eyes,
Seek comfort in nothingness,
Finding reassurance in Spartan starkness.

This clutter of disguised insecurities,
Sweep it all aside this instant,
Absorb the clarity,
Of this pristine space,
Reveling in a momentary state of grace.

Now swirl your paintbrushes,
In hues unseen, step away,
From a monochrome destiny,
And create a terpsichorean vision,
Of twirling, twinkling, dancing passion.

No longer hesitant,
Nor afraid anymore, of new beginnings,
And life at its unrehearsed best,
Of leaping into the unknown abyss,
And taking final aim at everlasting bliss.

I loved this poem very much. It`s beautifully written. This is how one should face life.Accept life as a present,even if this is not what you wanted.

I have read the poem many times over. And loved it more each time. Somehow it reminded me of the 'Freedom from The Known' of J.Krishnamurthy. Following the directions in the first stanza, at the moment I intend to seek comfort in nothingness. See you on your blog soon.

No looking back
just walking forward
long clean strides
into a new sunrise
breaking the shackles

of stifling security
