reaffirmation (renewed horizons)

constructive outcomes
rely on
destructive beginnings

glass is broken
then reassembled into
new and creative forms


grass lays dormant
trees are stripped of leaves or
frozen in winter winds
only to reawaken in spring
for new and vibrant growth


structures are gutted
rendered useless
until labor and skill restore them
to even greater
utility and beauty


we are tested
in times of turmoil
beaten down and disillusioned, but

we won’t be broken
we won’t lie dormant
we won’t allow our strengths to
be rendered useless


we are creative
we are vibrant
we are useful
and beautiful

we’ll move ahead
because that is how
we grow

The Daily Post weekly photo challenge: New Horizon
“[S]how us something that you want to achieve [in the New Year]… imagine your new horizons.”

For me, I hope the new year brings more creative opportunities in working with stained glass, landscaping my yard and do-it-yourself projects in my home. And I hope to continue to grow and find new ways of using my strengths to contribute in building a better world.

    And even when we are looking back on the greatest portion of our lives we still hope and dream of what we can do and be in the future.
