Carry On

 

blue swallowtail

Push.
Give a gentle shove.
Move forward.
Inch your way
day by day.
Push.
Give a subtle nudge.
Onward go. Carry on.
Day by day.
Don’t give up.
Don’t give in.
For soon
strands in life’s chrysalis
release the holdings.
Those strands pose
like they’re waving goodbye.
You? You will meet your sky.

    • Good AM, Sarah. I’m glad you enjoyed my thoughts shared with my coffee time this AM. This was a quick write, & just think. . . you found a memorable line. Oh, these lines which mark our days.

      • Jan,

        It’s like old times…this sharing a cyber cuppa first thing in the a.m.

        You know what they say…it’s not the days, its the lines. : )

        I enjoyed your poem. It turned the bud of my day into a bloom.

        Thank you!

      • Sarah,
        Clink. Clink. Good AM with today’s early-morning coffee. This place, our new space for sharing scripts on the web, can be our online coffeehouse. We’ve always agreed, “The lights are always on. Pull up a chair.”

    • Maryse,
      I hope bright sunshine finds itself back with you soon. Got to wait on those weather patterns to shift. In these hot days of summertime, we’re blessed with July’s tempered self–high humidity, high temps, & guaranteed steamy air. Summertime is always memorably hot around here, especially in July & August. It’s nice to see you here.

    Yes, inspirational and conveyed with that beautiful image of a chrysalis releasing itself and its dream into flight. I also like the rhythm of resolve in this piece, the reader can feel this sense of tenacity!

    Thank you

    • Wendy,
      Glad this is inspiring to you. The butterfly’s life cycle is ever-intriguing. That particular life cycle is a reminder of how changes over time empower; we see that often in the end of cycles there is beauty. It’s always nice to share thoughts & writing with you.

      Good AM. Butterflies, small air dancers that they are, remind us to push, move, release, embrace—and fly. It’s nice to share writing times with you here.
