My life @JBelle_Poems

I held out my palm,

facing up.

My fingers rested

just touching, side by side.


I took a breath

and looked down at my hand.

What I saw,

what I saw was my life.


I saw all the things that make me, me.


I lifted the finger

of my other hand

And gently placed it

on the inside of my wrist.


I allowed it to slide up and over

the heel of my hand

and then down into

the trough of my palm.


The sensation was quiet,

hardly there.

My fingertip resting

in the palm of my hand.


It began to move again.

It drifted up the side

of my middle finger.

Around the top and then

gently down the other side.


It came to rest

in the palm of my hand.

I let it fall away.

What was left, was my life.

There,

in the palm of my hand.

My choices.

My opportunities.


My face relaxed

I smiled inwardly.


I now know,

it is all here.

It’s all right here,

waiting...

waiting for when I am ready.

My life revolves around the little things that make us feel. I watch and listen; taste and smell; I touch and sense.. then I gather it all together and offer it to you through my creations. It is important to stop and appreciate the smallest of moments. Taking time to reflect on the emotions attached to these snippets in time. Come with me on my journey. Embrace it. Jacqueline has two published poetry collections: When I Walk Upon the Earth & The Collection: a poetic exploration of friendship, love, fantasies and the soulmate. A third collection will be published late 2020.  Jacqueline has released the first two parts of the #video #microFiction, The Surprise, a collaboration with Daniel Lacho @GuruArtOfficial, https://youtu.be/JIBSXhTGass.
