Today’s prompt: Write an ‘At Last’/’Finally’ poem.

This sort of turned into a ‘Stop and smell the roses’ poem as well, but hopefully it still fits the theme! Enjoy…

To See the Stars Again

And now at long last,
After so much time spent
And sanity spilled like seeds,
Our toil turns to flowers
That show our arduous efforts
In a more alluring light.

To retire from that routine
Is to revitalise ourselves as well.
The twinkle returns to our eyes
The clouds of unease clear
Shining light on things missed
And seldom-seen stars in the sky.

Finally the pieces come together,
A project’s purpose made plain
After all of the senseless jargon
And every wasted breath and word
The road to escape is here,
Back to the real selves once lost.
