Hello 2023 – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

And isn't it always the question
how to begin again

to feel the crackly spark of
love's first touch

to adventure forth
eyes wide in wonder of

the not knowing when or how
but with surety that the next
wonderful will be there

remember springing out of bed 
because lightness 
was all you knew

it is the endings you keep 
tripping over

desire for only beginnings
no goodbyes
