Who Have You Become?

By Amba Gale

in the fall
of this second year
still in the passage
still in the migration
still moving into Stillness
still not hearing the future,
we nourish our spirit.

The ghosts of what might have been are leaving now,
to plague us no longer with their voices and their “coulda, woulda, shoulda”
and drop photos in our minds which leave us with regrets.
Let their bony fingers wave goodbye to this time of
grieving for what might have been.

Time, instead, for new words:

We can look newly at the sea the sun the moon the sky.

We can be willing
to be surprised
by who we have become,
who we are becoming.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
