Turning Points

Updated: Jan 2, 2023

The moment before our lips made fast

we were adrift

flotsam free floating on fortune’s tide

short of a soul mate

drifting in deep water

but a kiss brought us safely to shore

The moment before she was born

we were incomplete

a picture puzzle fresh from the box

but missing one piece

to fill that space

we made her and she made us whole once more

The moment before he told us

I was not diseased

our family tree was in full leaf

sturdy, reliable,

through graft and husbandry

assured of future fruits to harvest

The moment before…what?

I am lost

destination unknown


a new path to plot

will be the best or the hardest
