Beautiful New Beginning


Each moment is a new beginning …  each generation … How to remember this in the ongoing push of the day, the addictive pull of the blue-light screen? … Like all the plastic in the ocean no one needed in the first place, our lifestyle is locked afloat … and we, caught up in it all, rushing around … insanity …  I shelter a while in a cafe …

Barista art in chocolate dust swirls across my coffee, an exquisite heart anchored in delicate, creamy froth  …  perfect … reminds me love is … And I remember …

It’s a clear autumn morning in the garden. I’m with my grand daughter, dirt on our hands, sun on our faces. A wave of stillness pervades my being …  A wide opening to the day, and to her presence, anchors this timeless moment, refreshing a page in my life story. It’s a beautiful new beginning for me… a song for her and maybe for you …

The summer heat is fading. She says
‘Gran – it’s gardening weather!’
We plant some kale and cavolo
Gather the pumpkins in
She’s humming a sweet little song
There’s a feeling of forever
We’ve all we need in a morning fresh and new

This is life how it’s meant to be
Simple contentment and harmony
And, like I recall my Gran, will she remember me
On a peaceful autumn day with not a breath of wind?
As a wide blue sky sings
A beautiful new beginning

We come indoors, wash our hands
And while Gran prepares dinner
She draws a picture of the sky
With a rainbow in the corner
The sun is bright in her world
It warms the coming winter
We’re kindred souls together on this earth

This is life how it’s meant to be …

She’s my little pumpkin, now asleep
I gaze at her skin – it seems to glow
She’s snuggled in a soft, pink rug
On the floor beside my bed
There’s a shiver in the air
I pull her covers over
She’ll be going home tomorrow bathed and fed

This is life how it’s meant to be
Simple contentment and harmony
And, like I recall my Gran, will she remember me
On a peaceful autumn day with not a breath of wind?
Not a breath …
She is my beautiful new beginning
