Beginning Again For The Umpteenth Time



A blank page but what to write

About new beginnings and dread


Who has the time when life changes

As the roller coaster clackity clacks


Is it always planned?

Hell no

A well-ordered life affords this luxury dread

Top edge dipping deep down it goes

It’s not that I don’t have an inkling


I do


Many times more than I can know

I must step without a gracious heads-up

I have to, you see

How many times can I begin?

Have I begun more accurately so


Now plus plus one, plus one, plus…

It’s happening again, away we go!






The prompt is “…a blank page but what to write…”
