Forward Leaves

There is so much exquisite beauty in this world. It rises with the sun, it sets with the moon, and all manner of exquisite intricacy lays before me. In the wide-open spaces of the sea, in the distant fields of my youth, in the mountains of my premature middle-agedness, in the richness of the jungle which will be my future, I embrace the beauty before me. Immersing my life of imperfection in so much beauty, so much love, so much fullness unbalances my internal stormy sea of in-tranquility.

My path forward leaves the jumbled mash of what was far behind.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 53

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided 🙂
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂
