What do I want…?

Sitting here in lockdown,

gazing over the rooftops before me, a question echoes in my mind…

What do you want, he asked me,

the question was loaded,

searching my deeper self my dreams and longings…

but my dreams, my longings have been readjusted in recent years,

I am no longer who I thought I was,

and I truly don’t know what I want…

Oh on the surface I do;

I want to meet a friend for coffee, or lunch, or both,

I want to hug people, and be hugged…

I want to get into my car and drive to the beach,

to take that holiday


the list goes on..

but this is 2021, and like 202 brings lockdown and uncertainty…

new words have entered my vocabulary, lockdown, social distancing… Covid-19 (20/21)..

Zoom, Zoom in, you’re on mute…Zoomed out,


But what do I want, what do I truly want…

I am not sure I dare go there,

I wonder what mysteries might open within if I did…

would I expose myself, or experience some unexpected epiphany,

the unveiling of my soul,

coming to myself at last,

and finding myself home…


what do you want?

I’ll let the question echo just a little longer…


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
