POISED TO MOVE
Standing in the midst of change I look, in wonder, for a clue.
Seeking a sense of what is to come and where the spark will lead.
There is electricity of excitement as closure soon approaches.
All threads coming to a final knot in my current circumstance.
And yet, there is no mourning, no bitter regret.
There are only memories – sweet and enlightening.
I have done what I could and that is enough.
I have worked, learned, inspired and changed.
I am better than before and complete in this space.
I turn my head toward a new possibility, unseen and yet so sweet.
I speak and options begin to appear.
I reach across the unknown to find familiar hands to guide me.
I am safe.
And so I move into tomorrow with confidence.
And this too, brings me peace.
I am poised to move.
