A Perfect World to Begin Again

My husband conducting a dive briefing on Scuba Cat in the Similan Islands.

I ran away and back again

into your arms

You held me close

Poetry in motion

This life we have shared

Two beautiful children

Adorable girl

Adorable boy

Save everything and nothing

Because in truth

Nothing is perfect

Except for this moment


Right here
Right now
On this boat

Beside you

My guardian angel and best friend

To begin again

And never

End

      Hi PD,

      Not sure if you'll get this message, but I just rewrote the beginning of this poem. The first version was too flat in the beginning....kept the rest of it starting with "I ran away" the same. Hope you are well.

      Happy to be back. I have spent the past few hours reading your beautiful poems and thoughtful responses from so many of your wonderful fellow hubmates. I especially felt a strong kinship with one lady who I believe just turned 80. Looking forward to reading her hubs. What a wonderful way to begin today. Thanks for stopping by and reading my birthday presnt to Angel #1 (my husband). He will be celebrating his 52nd birthday on the 25th. Pisces and Scorpio. Ouch!

      I am really Happy to be first to read your heart's lyrics, though I'm sure that if read them next year, they will still resonate your ebb and flow, as with the power of both broken and unbroken shells. Welcome back... great to see you writing again Prisana.. just as strong in your words as ever... thank you for sharing some beauty with the world... take care.. PD
