J is for… Jettison
~ by Laurel Regan

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - J

this precious, beautiful life
far too fleeting to waste
a moment
fretting over opinions
tongue-biting in case of offense
striving to reach an unmeetable ideal

it’s long past time for a sea change

illuminate murky mind-corners
cluttered with emotional detritus:
paralyzing fear
crippling guilt
binding shame

sweep it up, decisively
toss it all, permanently
throw open the windows, joyfully

to light
to love
to rebirth

spring is here
