Love this poem. And there’s an amazing song to go with it! 😉
Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too.
You can watch it on YouTube or go to my home page:
Renewal happens in stage leaps
and high dives.
Under the water waits another
life, another world
Listen to the keening of the day.
Spring always comes around again.
The sun doesn’t move but we can.
Don’t be afraid to shimmer
to put on new skin.
Let your heart be hungry
Knowing whatever you become
next will be better.
Shed your claws, your regrets
The air is brighter but the time
finite. Jump into the arms of
the novel of your life while
there still time to live the story.
