Reemergence (New Series)

I am heading into new territory, I hope you will continue to journey with me.  I will be sharing a few poems as I am led, on writing for the purpose of healing. I may share  poems written during my teen years in conjunction with current ones I am writing now in my fifties.

Here is the first poem for the upcoming series: Poetry (as) Pathway. I encourage you to respond with your own writing, as you feel led.



When the crying first came,

like a flood of tears

that would not cease,

I was wading into my mid-twenties



Submerged in a sea of lies,

I swam to shore,

exhausted I emerged


laid wet on the sand

safe, I thought,

from the past…


until now.



Thank you for reading, I will be linking these poems under a Tab for easy access. If you have any thoughts or questions, please comment below and I will respond  ASAP.

    This poem speaks volumes to me. I used to say, if possible, I would like to live those late teen, early twenty years over, knowing what I know now. I would be more careful with time and with treasure. I would study more and waste less time. But everyone I said the first part to said they’d probably make the same mistakes. I am no different, I might also.

    I always enjoy your writings Dawn. “Reemergence” caused me to stop and think just a little about what I was experiencing during my late teens and early twenties. At 19 I was smacked in the face with the biggest lie of my life and it changed me in many ways, even to this day. Thank you for always sharing and always being such a beautiful soul. I am blessed to have crossed paths with you and can now call you “friend. ❤
