The fall

If someone’s words hurt me

I’m supposed to forgive them instantly 

My heart should supposedly

Not be offended by anyone

But these are very high ideals

And not easy to live by

Sometimes it’s good to receive a dose of humility 

Sometimes it’s good to come back down to earth

There is a freedom in flying high

But you can also fall

A new beginning

A new notebook 

As I embark on a new adventure 

A new beginning 

A new phase in my life

 

Venturing south

Seeking the sun

Looking for community 

Looking for camaraderie

 

As my children begin to fly away

It’s time for me to look around

Assess things

And start new ventures as well

 

There is sadness in loss

But joy in new possibilities 

 

It’s time to give in a different way

To be of service in a different way

 

I see the open road in front of me

And I’m ready to embark on this journey

When I retire!

When I retire, I’d like a plane
I’d like to travel and go insane!
Eat breakfast in Paris, dinner in Spain!
Fly like a bird, touch the clouds, release the pain!
Roam the sky, reach for the sun, be the plane!
Float like a kite, forget my fright, play a game!

Walk the planets, touch the moon, save the day!
Play with star dust, reach for trust, will you play?
Shop in Pluto, dance on the moon, is that sane?
Run all day, fly all night, come my way!
Talk all day, listen all night, will you stay?
I’d like to run, run, run, fly so high, every day!

p.s. Actually, I can’t wait till I retire, I’d like to do all this now! 🙂
