Time Framed ----- With Each Step

"In the midst of the ordinary time (kronos),
extraordinary time (kairos) happens."
quote from Dead Poets Society, Professor John Keating

With each step....


I step out on
this mystifying path,
filled with surprises
around every bend.


The “choice” taken has
made me strong
when I was weak. 

With each step -forward
I remember - what I left behind,
and can never forget

all those years
of love- laughter-tears, 
&

with each step
the distance grew
between you and me.

of love- laughter-tears,
and with each step

  3. Hi Joanny. I always love your posts -- the wonderful images you select, matched to your thoughtful words.

    This one is especially nice . . . about moving forward, one step at a time.
    Now I know you are well.
    Me too.

  4. On ne peut avancer sans connaître des hauts et des bas. C'est la vie. Mais on dit qu'on en ressort plus fort.
    On croise alors beaucoup de choses. Souvent sans s'arrêter. Et c'est ainsi que, sans doute, on passe à côté d'occasions extraordinaires. On ne peut vivre que de souvenirs. Il faut ouvrir les yeux et saisir la chance.
    Bonne journée, Joanny!

  24. I can very much relate to this poem Joanny. Truly bittersweet like TALON stated. The quote was perfection as well.
