All life is full of cycles of starts and stops, creation and destruction…
I have just found out that, in all probability, my working life has come to an end due to ill health. This poem flowed from that realization. It is about endings, beginnings, and trust…

Endings and Beginnings
Life throws curve balls at times
Standing things on their heads
And at first unwanted
Or so it would seem.
Doors close slamming in your face
Or are they really opening
Onto new life and new beginnings
Trust is the issue
I say I do but do I
Trust in the divine
Trust in the universe
Trust that the higher ones
Care for me
I am ready to be stood on my head.

Sarah Courtney Dean: I am a poet and my poetry is part and parcel of my spiritual tradition. I am a Druid and a seer and also a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. I live in the UK in the beautiful county of Dorset. My poetry is inspired by nature in all its forms especially by the progress of the seasons and how the Goddess is seen in them. I am single by choice and live with a ginger and white cat by the name of Rowan who as all cats are prone to rules the roost. You can find me on facebook here and on my page here.
