A new beginning of a reed in a stream growing by sunlight and water.

Out of the Blue
Dutch Touch
If it Doesn’t Belong

New Beginnings
Yesterdays are gone
Memories distant past
Time to move on
Those moments have passed

A path to the future
Journey still unknown
Stumbling in search of clarity
Of seeds yet unshown

New beginnings
Full of prospect and dreams
With change comes great hope
And nothing’s as clear as it seems

A new start beckons
Its calling your name
To ignore new beginnings
Would be such a shame

Opportunities missed
Loss of starting anew
Embrace new beginnings
As life’s moments are few
