Angela Dunning, poetry, personal growth, healing, horses

It’s okay, once in a while
To look back
To take a quick glance over your shoulder
And remember all that was good
All that you loved
And all that brought you such joy and fulfillment
But, then it’s important to look to where you are going
Ears pricked, moving forwards once more
Like the horse, always moving on
Hardly if ever looking back
Eyes on the future
Looking ahead
What’s next?
Where now?
While at the same time feeling yourself rooted
In the here and now
In your body at it moves you so faithfully through each day
And your breath as it sways rhythmically in and out:
Here
And
Now
Here
And
Now
With a mind and body inhabiting all three spaces
We go on
But remember
All that has been and once was
And all that loved us so very much.
