Moving Forward

Living in the city gave me a hair line fracture
   only discovered
    upon my move to Gibsons
where time stands still amongst the lapping waves
and long grey cranes that waggle their heads in search of fish-
  there is much freedom here I think
while walking down our one Main Street
No don't hunger for the city- 
  it's endless malls and congested traffic
that smacks of arteriosclerosis of the veins

I celebrate my decision to relocate thereby having time
and opportunity to explore retirement that 
motivates me to kick start my creativity-
I count my blessings everyday.
