Don’t Worry. Write Poetry.

By adding up time

spent on worry, we’d see how

it subtracts from happiness.

spent on poetry, we’d see

how it multiplies pleasure.

 

(This poem was written jointly by my son and me and was posted on mondosedoka.com. I wrote the first three lines and he replied with the second three lines. We have been writing a joint poem daily using the mondo sedoka form for over seven years.)

  1. What a wonderful practice to share with your son! I will have to look this up. I would love to do this with a dear friend who moved away several years ago. BTW, love the contrast that you two came up with. Loved it.
