In the Middle of Life

Are you bold enough
to shift positions
to set out on unthreaded paths
or do you yearn for safety
ignoring everything swaddled
in uncertainty, afraid to discard
a familiar name tag
flattened by housekeeping

the wind blows seeds

  2. Wind is powerful, a great metaphor for change, and seeds, for potential, for bigger and better things in the future. I think she'll be bold enough.
