Waves


keyhole - painting waves by Paul Carter


Is Wild Woman brave enough
to peek through the keyhole to her future
and see what it reveals?

Will it be wave-song and mornings,
or farewells and sunsets?

It takes courage
to want to know
the answer.


How rarely this happens, a few words 
that answer two prompts!

  3. Courage to know, a foregrounding of reality which might could be just fine!

  4. Good question for each of us, Sherry. I think if it is something positive we would like to know...but if it is negative, I don't think so.

  5. Very true and beautifully spoken Sherry. It is kind of like denial. To face the truth takes courage to be willing to ask the questions of utter truth certainly does take a great courage. You have a courageous heart Sherry. :-)

  7. Best to take it as it comes. Better to be happily surprised than sadly disappointed.

  11. Yes it does take bravery to want to see the future. I am not sure I want to know, but I hold out hope there is much more joy to come. Thank you so much for taking part in the prompt!!

  12. I'm sure she's too busy living in the present to bother about the future.

  14. I think courage is exactly what it takes... but it takes courage to be blindfolded as well....

  15. with all the musicians dying lately I was thinking of looking through a key hole at my past. I think you have enough courage to look forward...all poets do

  16. I like it, Sherry. I'd go for the mornings and if the evenings come, so be it.
    You know you are still young in my book, I remember when ...

  18. Never have I had m palm read or been even tempted to have cards read - I don't even like horoscopes. Don't want to know or even "play" with the idea. Nice questioning poem.

  19. I don't know if I would have the courage to look. I like your ponderings on the idea of it, Sherry.

  20. Well done :-) and congratulations! I awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award.

    http://beehalton.com/2016/01/seven-facts-about-bee-and-award.html

    I awarded you because I believe you have an excellent blog and I want to introduce it to my readers. This award is great for that.

    But I also know that awards are a lot of work, and they do not fit in every blog. So feel free to take part if it tempts you and if not go on with what you do best: Your blog!!!!!!

  21. Beautiful! I have missed you Wild Woman...

  22. In my journey, life has thrown me so many curves, I didn't see coming through the keyhole, I have taken to proceeding down life's path, in the knowledge that it is a given: I WILL BE SURPRISED ... occasionally, pleasantly surprised (ha!) that is about as close as I have come to knowing the answer, before heading off in a new direction! I agree, it does take courage to constantly pursue - to want to know - what surprises lie ahead. An interesting piece, Sherry ... made me think about the process.

  25. Courage and a determination to make it happen ~ Smiles ~

  26. Perhaps that is why we are blissfully unaware of what the future may hold, Sherry. I think the majority of people would not have the courage needed to look at their future unflinchingly. Nicely done!

  27. Sherry,

    I'm not sure that I'd seriously want to know' my pathway and what it holds for me.'I'm simply not that courageous. Perhaps it stems from exposure to too many old wives tales, or Irish preaching!!
