Never say Never

Fragrance lingers
I catch it here and there
hints of pleasure
as I shift the air to
turn another page.

Island sunrise opened
new windows on the world
pain was yesterday
now, a shadow of time
and I hold the key
to destiny
knowing, it is mine.

I push
pushed, pushed
thinking all the while
there was something
tangible to be gained
from that stubborn persistence

and yet,

it should have all been
crystal clear
(and was)
if only I had cared to look
more deeply
than I had cared.

Love always has a price to pay
but, we pay it anyway
as pearls are formed from chaos within
so we too, are shaped by life
with its many twists and turns

Never say never
is now, never again

and I pay my own way
in atonement.

  1. “Never say never” was always mine and D’s sayings also. Our life proved this true. Yours too, probably. I agree that love always has a price to pay, but we pay it anyway. D used to say when the brass ring comes you have to grab it. We did.

    I am putting your blog into my “Reader.” You don’t have a follow icon, but I will from now on follow your posts. I had missed some gems. Blessings to you.

  2. fav. verse:” Love always has a price to pay
    but, we pay it anyway
    as pearls are formed from chaos within
    so we too, are shaped by life
    with its many twists and turns”

  3. I loved this poem, such wise words. Every life is crafted by the things and experiences in that life.
    Wish you a great and inspiration full 2012

  4. I feel in love with these lines!

  5. This beautiful piece lilts and the imagery and learning pervades throughout..wonderful start to another year of scribbling..happy new year..Jae

  6. Destiny … an endless topic to ponder about … that we can even learn … ahead, and be better prepared for what might be ( that’s me, Mrs. Security… 🙂 Love, always, my friend, cat.

  7. But in order to never say never you have to say never. So I guess you truly never cannot say never say never and then not say never. Aren’t I clever?

  8. hmmm speaks of wisdom, hmm sweet, me likey! Well island air to an island girl is always cool to read 🙂

  9. We are indeed shaped by life. Perhaps we can ‘take over’ and shape our lives instead this new year 🙂 All the best to you too!

  10. Hello Daydreamertoo. Happy New Year!
    With each passing year, we reflect, we renew & we start afresh with a positive attitude.
    You are right…we are the ones in charge of our destiny, although I do think God guides our footsteps because He knows our destination(smile).
    Wise words indeed. Nice image.
    Lovely post to start the new year.
    Thanks for sharing. Appreciate your kind words too.

    Wishing you a year filled with much happiness, laughter & an abundance of love.
