Then I Remember


Windows rattle – leaving me

            with the sense

I’m vulnerable

to the elements.

So much of this life

has left me feeling numb

                        and off kilter.

Now the wind –

the goddess’ breath blows strong

pushing me to decisions, heightening

my awareness of life moving forward.


Wrapped deeply within me

            passion still brews;

liquid explosions waiting

            for the chance

to surface – possibilities


I still glance backward, and wonder what if

on those days when stepping one foot further

seems impossible – then I remember

to dream.
