Continuous Beginnings

On Continuous Beginnings
original art by Sharon Lamhut Willen


 One

Beginnings are cool places
Where no one is well-known
And nothing has gone wrong yet.

Daring, scary places
We never get over
Until we grow fond of
Continuous beginnings.

Two

There is no personal history.
 It’s always the first inning.

Today is a new gift to enjoy.
The challenges of yesterday
Have either evolved or devolved.

No time is the same as this time.
Progress is a matter of
Continuous beginnings.

Three

Each day for as long as
We’ve been counting and before

The same things have been happening

To different people
In different places
Again and again and again.
Continuous beginnings.
