untangled impasse

making sense yet once more,
thoughts re-arrange.
gone is impasse,
replaced by resolve.

wisdom prevails,
cobweb sweep away leaving
behind precision
of contemplation.

jumbled reflections untangle,
fusing with the
transparency.
great weight lifts.

buoyancy bounces off each step,
taken in new
direction. in course of life,
one can change avenues.

taking a detour,
following a new trail,
closing that door
firmly behind, he leaves

with a bounce in his steps…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For my nephew who had a little setback a while back. He is ok now. He has to be. He is MY nephew!!

A very different story:

always looking
for an angle—painted himself
into a corner

Blessings to your nephew.

That poem brings a sense of the wonder and carefree joy only youth has the strength to hold on to!

Thanks for stopping by today.

You really have a knack for touching on the mental gyrations we humans perform when we are processing feelings/events. I could never explain things so eloquently! Enjoyed you before when Michele sent me, so I came back!

I love the whole precision of contemplation. What a neat concept; I wish my contemplation was precise!

I tend to look at new beginnings as adventures, too. Heck, every day's an adventure in my world!

I'd really like to close some doors n LEAVE too...but it has to come naturally...when Im ready to do so.

Lovely verse there Gautami!
