Inside ~ Outside

.

Inside ~ Outside

.

My day started grey

Inside and out

Words waiting to write

But hidden in doubt

.

Until I remembered

This light of mine

Has much to share

And sometimes needs time

.

Time to just ponder

And spend time within

Being gentle with self

Letting go of chagrin

.

Accepting the tears

Yet knowing I need

To get out of my head

Let my dog intercede

.

She pulls me outside

And straight down the block

To the huge grassy park

For a brisk morning walk

.

I let the ball fly

And she runs like the wind

Always returning

Helping blues rescind

.

She runs the most

But I do as well

Feeling my heart pound

Kissing sadness farewell.

  1. Time to just ponder / And spend time within / Being gentle with self / Letting go of chagrin

    I love this stanza the most. Sometimes we just have to do some quiet reflection and stop beating ourselves up so much for things to work out again. Thank you for reminding me of this! 🙂
