We talked of Beginnings

We sat at the lake and talked of Beginnings
Difficult to concentrate - with your head thrown back
the sun glistening
on your caramel skin
head to pink-socked toes

You talked of how beginnings always end
Fits of complacency and contempt
Meaning settled on me like thick honey
Wanted to say we were an exception
Broken people - rebuilt through struggle and faith
We will prosper and grow together

Newly risen sun gives promise each day
Of renewal and commitment
to continue to strive
the energy of our beginning
Each moment will be new
every moment created by God
a promise of renewal and reinvigoration
