Dragonbreath sunsets

Craggy rocks submerged in the shipwrecked water

‘The people we were aren’t always the people we become’ (VanDerWerff 2017)

That may be disappointing,

but it also means we’re not bound by our past.

Living on with that knowledge is both powerful

and humbling.

 

The hermit crab rolls another grey ball of sand out from its hole

onto the shore. And I know that when I return, next year,

it will still be there,

rolling, still.

That which was built yesterday will be washed away

with forgetting.

Another journey is about to begin.

 

I must learn to begin, again.

I don’t know where it will lead, but

not knowing is a part of attending to

possible

            beginnings.

                                 A small bird skips across the muddy sand as

jazz lullabies play from the radio of a car.
