On tiptoe we tread
New stepping stones
Hesitancy seeks to confirm
With magnetic force
the mystery of possibiliites
Draws us deeper
………or to Leap ?
Hello Colleen! You offer a picture of my path, and words of my present journey. Woke up this morning deciding to LEAP!!! Thank You for this beauty and Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

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…”
December 6, 2009 at 3:23 am
“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.
December 6, 2009 at 3:49 am
ha Ha ! Seems like we’ve linked up to create a branch to launch our monkey selves off from right here ! Ready…steady…. WAIT…anyone else care to join ??? !!! 🙂

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.
December 7, 2009 at 3:33 am
Smiling, just smiling and wondering when I get to hear the rest? 🙂
December 8, 2009 at 11:11 pm

I enjoyed reading this Colleen; it’s lovely.

“…our monkey selves”? Ho-ho-ho! I know them.
Have they been bad or good this year? Hmmm…
Just tip-toad over to say,
Merry Christmas, Colleen!
May 2010 bring you ‘offerings’ you don’t expect.
