And you know it is hard to climb
Sitting in the starlight,
And love turned to stone
When you left the valleys behind
And all that you can do
Is smile at the moon
And start the climb

This is for d’Verse open link night.
So today on Friday 13th of January our furniture is scheduled to leave Whangarei exactly 11 years to the day we arrived. We drove over the Brynderwyns on Friday 13 Jan 2006 and saw the vista of Whangarei and Mount Manaia for the very first time. I actually began to write this poem many years ago when it became clear to me that when leaving to pursue our dreams we inevitably leave behind places and people that we have grown to love and cherish.
Arohanui. Great love to all. XXXXXX
