Arrivals and Departures

Once again this year, I journeyed to Ireland. Something about the land fires my imagination and feeds my soul, and I will be posting poems written during my trip in days to follow. This morning, though, my poem is a response to meeting life's goals... and setting new ones.

When you get to where you are going,
And you will,
Celebrate it,
Sing it,
Take wing and BE it.
Let that feeling sink into your marrow
Then, with joy in your soul
Look down the long hallway of your life.
You will see a door
Adorned with sparkles and draped with party streamers.
This is your next goal.
Go forward with glee.
