Preparing the Canvas

Surrounded by clutter,

Weathered by thought.

Misty or cloudy day,

Afraid to step out.

There in the center of it all,

A blank Canvas.

Weathered or Illuminating,

It remains.

Sight or sound,

Felt or knowing.

We step,

We purge,

We prep for a new scenery of sorts.

Between Two Worlds

Walking silently,

Along a narrow road.

Pushed,

Pulled,

One way,

Or the next.

Return our footsteps,

Between two realities.

Acknowledging,

Choosing,

Where to place our footing.

Chop wood,

Carry water.

Straight,

Sinuous,

Narrow is the way.

On one hand,

Shadow of doubt.

Flicker of hope,

In other.

Walking silently,

Between Two Worlds.
