Slowly along a path-
With a sense of hope and
Renewal welling up.
Inside filling me
With a burning desire
That shines bright
Radiating all around.
A deep realization growing,
Flourishing, strong, thriving!

I wrote this poem New Year’s Eve 2013 as I chose my word to focus on for the year. This past year’s word has been Thrive. I chose the word before I decided to retire and this word has served me well to set the foundation to heal and ready myself for the next steps.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
Special Note: Butterflies represent transformation. And monarchs are especially important as their numbers certainly have been declining. But it seems they continue to thrive and it is reported that their numbers are beginning to increase with this years southern migration.
I leave you with a little bit of sentiment about butterflies, transformation and thriving. I welcome you to download the photo and share.
