The Daily Haiku – Anserine 5


just like Artemis,
I carry the quiver of arrows of time past,

arrows of time past
bring unwelcome memories,
burnt into healed scars.

burnt into healed scars
it's not good to pick at them,
but leave them to be.

but leave them to be
like war wounds from past battles,
at peace with myself.

at peace with myself,
I can rise up when I like
the future to dream,

the future to dream
of living in the light of love;
all my dreams come true.

all my dreams come true,
living in the here and now
arrows of times past,

arrows of times past
remind me of my Goddess,
just like Artemis.
