Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow

The waves wash the shore

The rhythm of life pulsates


Sunshine then darkness

All filled with Creator’s breath


Seasons pass us by

All life ebbs and flows freely


Clocks mark these changes

Our lives expand and contract


Birds shed their feathers

Snakes don new skin with travail


Change: the impetus

For the continuation

Of energy’s expansion

“I would like to you write your reflections about change either by using a Choka (a Choka is formed by writing 5/7 syllable couplets and you end the poem with an extra seven-syllable line. The poet may write as many couplets as he or she desires.) or a Shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables) or perhaps a Shadorma variation.  And choose whichever aspect of change interests you at this moment.”~Bastet

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
