Sundown Path2


This feeling of disdain
wells up in my chest.

Is it from others?
No, it’s from within,
And it’s not real.

Where is it coming from?
Yes, it’s a past coming back,
holding you back.


“You don’t matter,
so ignore it and move on
in compromise or
over compensation.”

“Vanquish it because
you know it’s not real.
It’s holding you back
from living right now
in today’s possibilities
and Love.”



“Take the Sundown Path
where the magenta
Crepe myrtle line
the way.”

The sundown sets
along the tree tops
in the distance

The trees, the houses,
the picnic shelter have all
been turned upside down
in the pond’s reflection.
Everything has turned
into wonder.

As I’m walking along
this sundown path,
It’s like a still life painting,
in what’s become
Magical time.
