by Barbara Miles Jackson

Standing on the threshold of life,
The joy of a new beginning,
Air fresh and clear,
Full of hope and anticipation,
Don't stop now,
or be over run by time.
Turn through disappointment,
Let happiness replace sorry,
Slow down for a chance encounter.
Keep moving,
the way uncharted,
but far a reflection.
Walk through the door.
Walk through the thresholds of life.

In The Courtyard

Barbara B-Miles Jackson, born in 1948, grew up in Texas, studied poetry as a student in school. The poetry of other poets inspired me to go forward, changing myself when I could not change my situation. I one child and two grandchildren., Later needing a way of expression and focus, I turned to writing poems. Writing reminds me, we must travel through life situations with as much grace and dignity as possible., I started writing in 1995 for an Open Poetry Contest with National and International Library of Poetry.
