My Hopes, Memories and Dreams


On tiptoe we tread
Tentatively tracing
New stepping stones
Before us
Hesitancy seeks to confirm
The offerings

With magnetic force
the mystery of possibiliites
Draws us deeper
Clock ticking
Heart trembling
To step…
………or to Leap ?

  5. Hi Colleen, your poems are a much needed pick-up, sometimes I get into miserable cynic mode & life isn’t all doom and gloom. It’s in the head, we can’t be ‘go for it’ 100% of the time and need a trigger. You’ve ‘reminded’ me again, one of my pick-me-ups is ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’.. I believe that could be the follow-on to your poem…

    • Hi Tiger-city. Nothing makes me happier than hearing that my little poems help to inspire others. The experience continues to astound me. I know for one, I spend far too much energy contemplating the “what-ifs” and in hindsight, the times I have been daring enough to take the plunge have if nothing else, always, always taught me so much about myself. So I too need the reminder to “feel the fear and let go…”

      • “Daring to take the plunge,” is what it is all about, isn’t it?

        Well, monkey see, monkey do, is what they say from my hometown, and I feel I can “buddy up” along side someone as adventurous and open as you.

  8. I can’t decide which I enjoyed more — the picture or your poem!! “the mystery of possibilities draws us deeper, closer” such a wonderful expression of life’s journey, one stepping stone after another.
