Word of the Week: Key



                                        
Throw Away the Key
                           
Release the burdens, bearing down.
Throw away the heavy, tarnished key.
Breathe in fresh clean, life-restoring air.
Expand and color, long lost dreams.
Forgotten, fallen and frayed.
Left for dead, in disrepair.
                        
Often it takes a lifetime.
To see a wrong made right.
But the light will prevail.
It is there, always.
The Truth and Beauty.
That spurs our good works on.
Even in times of total and utter despair.
                                         
Savor the scents of early spring.
Revel in the shimmering Van Gogh skies.
While buds slowly appear.
Reminding and restoring us.
Harbingers to sunlight and hope unfurling.
                                 
Throw away the key.
Cast off the dark days.
The murky mire cast by evil ways.
                           
The gift of Joy.
Finally restored and rightfully ours.
The sunlit path awaits.
A journey beckons, without end.

We all need to find the courage to "turn the key" and let the fresh air and thoughts in at times.
Here's to a week filled with new discoveries, opportunities and finding the "perfect" inspiration.

This is so true. Dwelling on negatives always bring us down. And brings more bad things into our lives. We do need to throw off the darkness, turn the key and head into the light. Good reminders.

Lovely poem. Here's a limerick on the "key theme" I wrote back in April:

When you’re whipping your verse into shape
And are caught in a verse-challenged scrape,
The delete key is handy.
Assisted by brandy,
And last, but not least, try escape.

Creative Keys

Geraldine said...

Hi Teri, Thank you so much!

Hi Margie, Thanks Margie and a big hug back to you!

Hi Joe, I couldn't agree more!

Hi Madeleine, Ah, what a hoot! Love it! I have to be careful with that delete key though LOL.

Happy Week to everyone, G :<)
