Alphabe-Thursday/Flash Friday 55: Z is Not the End

our journey has unfolded
from alpha through to zed
our story isn’t ending…
barely beginning instead
this zenith; this vantage point
gives clue to roads ahead
it’s time to make choices;
which paths we choose to tread
trusting insights we’ve gleaned
through joys and tears we’ve shed
weaving our life’s tapestry
from many different threads
