This excellent poem by Christine at http://journeyintopoetry.wordpress.com was born out of her personal experience but has a message of acceptance and hope (especially in terms of creating abundance instead of lack). Through everyday endeavors, and with remarkable honesty, Christine lyrically processes her struggles and experiences towards a profound and wise conclusion that many others can relate to and be inspired by. Certainly, she is a constant inspiration to me.

All shall be well
and all shall be well
and all manner of things
shall be well
Julian of Norwich

All Will Be Well

I’m not sure where my head was
when I bought the books,
recipes to die for, illustrated,
when even a spoon can argue
its way out of grip.

I think there was a quiver of loss,
last-ditch attempt to hold on,
ache of desire and grief for what was;
sore fingers grappling rock
before the fall.

But wanting leads us down a path
of sufferance,  starves the spirit,
sucks it dry.
Time to let go, embrace a
new normal, accept what is,
here in the moment;
an exposition, prelude to the next phase,
knowing that

wind will still blow secrets to the birds,
sun tease with games of hide and seek.
Rain will still fall soft on arid soil
or pelt like Tungsten darts,
and night…
