Winter Afternoon

Winter Afternoon

I think I learned something on my walk today
I am not ready to go inside
Listening to the birdsong
I wonder if I can find the words
To express the acceptance I begin to feel 
Of this next phase of my life’s journey.

It is undiscovered country for me
But one well-traveled by others before
My old life will not return
But that need not bring sorrow
May I open to new gifts to come
That is my prayer.
