~ A Fresh Perspective ~

I find myself humbled by a fresh perspective,
Able to look forward,
Instead of back.
Able to see the washed out, grey haze
Of forgotten memories
And faded yesterdays,
Discovering that it doesn’t hurt
Anymore.
Hesitant to trust the faint tendril
Of hope which gently uncurls
From deep within.
All that I am, have ever been,
From past to present,
As the future unfurls itself
Before me.
And I realize just how much
I never really
Knew me.
But now I’m learning again,
And I think this time
I’ll be a better student.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.

      🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read and leave a comment! Fresh perspectives are needed throughout all of life, I think. I wish I could participate in the rally, but I don’t have much free time at the moment.
