Begin – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

pull the small metallic triangle
tear through troubles
until tingle arrives
until you are fully unwrapped
leaving anxious ribbons
tinseled tension
trailed behind

bare-skinned, beaming, braver 
than the last version
greet your new shadow-self
welcome possibilities

many stones of adventure
lay at your feet

  1. I rather like the “stones of adventure” at our feet. Also am fascinated by your blog’s title and tagline–very clever and inviting! Thanks for visiting my blog…where things are both light and dark.

  2. This is such a wondrous, positive poem, Ali. It’s the invitation to begin anew.

    Perfect photo, too.
