Abandoned Grieves

Face the new morning sun and nod a farewell to the waning moon
Push aside the thin wire gates and smoldering coals
Tighten and double knot your leather laces and trudge through the thick ankle mud
Raise your knees high and step steadily through the tall grasses
that wipe the boots cleaner with each heavy stride
Wade ahead in the loose knee-deep footing to the end of this day
build a warm fire, dry your boots and worn green socks
and mind your sore wrinkled feet
Dream of new beginnings and abandon the year-long grieves


  1. I comment on your awesome poem on Xanga…but wanted to “like” it…and leave you some hugs here!!! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂


  2. This is phenomenal. And encouraging for exactly where I am in life. Perfect. I may have to print this sucker out and magnet it to my fridge or something if that is okay with you?
