On a windy night

In the middle of summer

The light showers

Soaked me skin down

Walking down the street

With all but myself

The darkness invited me

Welcomed me as its own

Uncertainty followed me

Fear shadowed my silhouette

Towering over my conscience

Questioned all I’d done

When I was certain

Confidence thwarted me

Now scared and doubtful

Courage keeps me company

A reluctant heart

Knows no fame, Identifies no glory

Baby steps to nascent dreams

Fountainhead of perfect bliss


July ’17 marks the completion of 5 years of blogging for The Musing Quill.
Here’s to everyone who’s been with me on this journey.
Loads of Love!
