At times, you cannot

Escape shadows of the past

By being present

So, make peace with them

Keeping in mind that was then

And that this is now

assemble ensemble

Your life is your stage

The curtain rises each day

You are the play write

Include whom you choose

Make the characters special

Folks you can enjoy

You decide who gets what lines

And the scenes they’re in

Recast favorites

Audition those you don’t know

Make sure, you’re the star

buy the shoes

You’ve nothing to prove

You’ve simply to enjoy life

Wear the clothes you love

Grab your color sticks

Paper, lonely and naked

Awaits your bidding

Bring forth the flowers

Fill in the spaces with trees

Watch the birds appear

Green up the grasses

Here come the cattle to graze

Under rainbow skies

Ponds of fish and frogs

Butterflies dance in the wind

Rocks to sit upon

Haiku will let you

Say a lot saying little

Retrains the verbose

one 4 all

The heart is biggest

When open to being filled

With peace at all times

Born to do this work

Transforming thoughts into words

To connect the dots
