My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.



This is a poem from the archives that continues to get a lot of page read each week.

Thought it was worthy of an encore on the Home page. 😉

Have a creative and meaningful week, G

My Poetic Path


  It’s about balance….

The changing seasons of life.
Breath in, breath out.
The circle that slowly goes…
It’s about love….
Changing faces/places/spaces.
Who we are and what we give, today.
Is not.
Who we are tomorrow.
We seek.
Shall we find?
Or shall we lose?
It’s about life….
Choices: made and missed.
Lives with limits.
Far better to be lived,
Fully and finally,
Are we ever sure?
Can we ever, truly know.
Who we are.
Who we are meant,
to Be.
Yin/Yang, a constant.
As it should be.
As it must be.
Moving life forward.
Coursing through our veins.
Until the last breath that we take.
Connecting, interjecting,dissecting and rejecting.
Meeting of the minds.
Bleeding of the hearts.

  1. Geraldine, I absolutely LOVE this poem because every word you shared is spot on! Yes, it’s all about balance, love and life, and the Yin/Yang of it all.

    I loved this part…

    “Yin/Yang, a constant.
    As it should be.
    As it must be.
    Moving life forward.”

    How true. It’s a CONSTANT.

    Thanks so much for re-posting this today because I think it’s something that we ALL should read everyday as a reminder 🙂

    Have a super week, my friend!
