Celebration
by
Mary Beth Watt

When you get to where you are going,
And you will,
Celebrate it,
Sing it,
Take wing and BE it.
Let that feeling sink into your marrow
Then, with joy in your soul
Look down the long hallway of your life.
You will see a door
Adorned with sparkles and draped with party streamers.
This is your next goal.
Go forward with glee.

2010 Mary Beth Watt.

Mary Beth Watt recently moved to Ashland, Oregon, after many years of living in the heart of Silicon Valley. She says, "I have written all of my life, everything from technical documentation to an as yet unpublished novel. But it is poetry I have always come back to,"—reading, speaking, and writing it." Mary Beth starts most mornings with a conference call of between two and ten participants; they first read an inspirational poem, then share their reactions—which often includes poems they’ve written in response.

Wish I had known you in Silicon Valley. What a lovely poem to say goodbye. Or hello. It touched me. I live in Silicon Valley. I'll keep your blog in mind.
