Plotting a Course – Poem by Ali Grimshaw


Another sunrise through our window
light of reexamination

realization of the rich journey
the roads I would have not taken

without your vastly different
sense of direction

neither of us see West the same
but agree, it is not the end of our daylight.

  1. The benefits of seeing life from different points of view! I love it. No two of us see West the same way. Thankfully, my hubby and I have the same concept of “West”.

    1. This line about seeing direction, West, differently came from a conversation with my neighbor. I thought is was a great way to represent our different ways of seeing the world.
      Thanks for your reflection dear friend.

  2. I’m glad I got to read your rich quadrille, Ali; thanks for sharing, especially the sunrise as ‘light of reexamination’ and the final hopeful line.
