Peace In Me

When I finally let you go

I found peace of mind.

I found a peace within me where once there were numerous questions.

My tears have found peace

And most tears I cry now are for joy.

Where I used to have a knot for fear of not being with you,

I am now able to breathe easily.

I found peace the moment I let you go.

When I realised you were the chaos

I was able to appreciate the silence.

I am now at peace with myself

And you are now just a lesson on an old page in my book.

Chapter 2016

This chapter is almost through 

Only a couple more pages left to fill

Another year and something new

And maybe some more coffee spills.
Add more colors to end the chapter right

Smile from the heart, to brighten up the night.
And as one chapter ends,

Another begins

The Broken Pencil

it curves, it glides, ever so gently

sweeping an array of beauty

leaving behind a sketch that comes alive

as the artist’s hands stroke its brilliance

slowly it makes its way

through the pages of white

until an image shows; beauty on paper

 a straight line, a curve, a curl

a swirl, up and down the empty page is filled

the gentle hand, so light

works its magic

the page is filled and the work is done

only a master could do wonders

with a broken pencil in hand
