Maureen Clifford © The #ScribblyBark Poet
There is no right of way – only an open horizon
and a long road ahead.
Put yesterday behind you, ask no questions
but take care.
What happened across the tracks
is none of your business.
Concentrate on the now
don’t try reading between the lines
or second guessing yourself.
You will never make sense of it all.
Instead allow yourself
to be bewitched and bedazzled by life.
Kick over the traces,
look for familiar faces
take your courage in both hands
for friendship is beyond price.
Somewhere there is music.
Somewhere there are wandering birds
and bells silent. Ringing in the changes
and flying high towards the jewelled light
like a moth to a flame takes coraggio.
Living takes courage.
Loving takes courage.
Admitting we were wrong takes courage.
But courage we have and dreams.
Let us go! … Andiamo!
