To be “In Like” or
Or bask in the moment which just was “is?”
How do you keep the doors open
yet keep that small wall of protection around you?
Build the wall?
Ban the doubt?
Leaves pop through frozen snow
Proclaiming the arrival of birth and new beginnings
Do I wish to be left behind in the polar vortex of my past?
break free with effervescence and joy to the coming spring?
