Release my Past

This is written for Trifextra: Week Fifty

This weekend we’re asking for 33 words about a new beginning.

Mountains to my left
As I drive to its entrance.
Snowcapped, majestic.
Beauty beyond my imagination.
Diverse you are;
Canyons, forest, geysers.
I have arrived.
Yellowstone
My spiritual journey begins.
Release my past.

  1. if only it were this easy, right? The ability to just let go and see all those places for what they are. Your words evoked the hike through them, the cold of the snowcaps, the yellow of the canyons, the green of the forest and the LIGHT of coming into a clearing, arriving.
    This was beautiful.

  2. living where I do – after having lived the first quarter of my life without – I cannot see me leaving “my” mountains – in my lifetime. 🙂 Welcome to the journey.

  3. I hope to see Yellowstone one day. Though not as grand, there are forested areas in my state that will suffice for some spiritual healing. Nature has a way of undoing some of the knots tied by living our hectic daily lives.

    • Yellowstone is an amazing place. My experience there wasn’t just nature but the people I worked with. It made for a great environment overall. I miss the park dearly. When you work there, you almost feel as if it is yours. But after you leave, its not yours any more.

    • It’s worth a visit if you are into nature’s beauty. There are other places of equal beauty. I guess it depends on where you want your journey to start. It’s different for each person. YNP just happened for me. I wasn’t there for a spiritual cleansing…it just happened.

  4. I have arrived. That’s a great line. It feels like a sigh of relief. Arriving at Yellowstone would do that. The Park, the Tetons one of the most spectacular areas of the U.S. I’d say. What a wonderful place to release the past.

  5. What beautiful imagery! It is a gift to be able to say so much with so few words…
    Thank you for following my blog and for taking the time to leave such kind comments…
    I wish you all the best on your journey — and I am looking forward to following along… Warmest thoughts… ~L

    • Thanks for the kind words. I loved your story, everyone should read it! So touching and really isn’t life about sharing it with friends! As far as my journey, It seems like its through a thick forest then into a swamp at times but I keep going forward.
