Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A New You.

Close your eyes and gently walk
Down dreamy Memory Lane.
Now stoop to pick and smell the flowers.
Choose just short stays - or stay for hours!
You're happy once again.
You're YOU.

Feel release right through your frame.
Your heart begins to breathe.
With stress gone, grasp this slower pace,
Relax - you're in a different place
And never want to leave.
You're a new YOU.

Examine what you feel right now.
What words spring to your mind?
Lightness? Freedom? Relief and Bliss?
Remember these so you'll not miss
The rescue you will find.
You're a relaxed, new YOU.

Envision your new rescued heart
Which nothing can invade.
This place to go when things are hard
Will transform you, when once you start
To value what you've made.
You're a relaxed and happy new YOU.

    This is the part i like most and can relate to
    Every body wish for a place to go to when thing are hard n the place where everyone seek sanctuary is different and the place where u go when things are hard is the place where u can be u n no one will say anything bad bout u. I think what i want to say is if there is a sanctuary for me it will be like tis, fore nothings can hurt me. (Report) Reply

    A very excellent poem for its message that is easy to pick up-- having a partner who is a yoga teacher its liken to a yoga lesson in words for the last line says it all in meditation 'Your a relaxed and happy new you', regards uavniceday'

    Yes, when beset by the 'blues', the best way to aim for the garden of 'pinks' is to go down memory lane and stop at every beautiful place on the way to ruminate upon the joys we had once drawn therefrom. A very inspiring poem with healing properties. The rhyme scheme of abccbd used for all the stanzas is also very interesting - somewhat resembling the structure of a Rondeau. This poem is very much to my liking and earns a ten from me. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for sharing Fay. nice writing By the way..I need a new ME......Tried re-inventing myself but the original version kept bursting out of the bag...Can't decide whether the bag was too tight or too slack..Like your view that we fail to see some of the things that are really close. If we slow down enough to see them we may wonder at their simple beauty.

    dear Fay, hats off to you.
    In each new breath we have new life,
    Forget old breath and with it its strife.

    Yes! i feel that confidence, each morning when i walk
    i hear woodpidgeions singing and i hear the mina's talk
    i feel the coolnest of the bush, the filtering sun above
    but most of all i feel, a kin with those i love

    my dear Fay! i raise my hat! good on you girl! (Report) Reply

    It is always a pleasure to read a poem that is written like a poem should be written, Fay, and this fine poem certainly all that and more. Your poem makes excellent use of common words and delightful imagery, and does not leave the reader groping for or wondering what you are trying to say. It is direct and to the point, a quality that seems to have been lost in a lot of modern poetry. As you probably noticed, I pretty much write the same way myself. Thank you for the treat of this charming poem. Carl. . (Report) Reply

    How nice it is ro be able to walk down memory lane But I fear we can't rely on the truth of memories We tend to edit iout the bad bits and see the rest through rose tinted spectacles. But it is stll good for you (Report) Reply
