Guiding Breath

I’m learning to turn my attention to

my breath throughout

the day. It

connects

my

mind

to my

body in

a natural way

making it less likely that I’ll go astray.

With An Eye To The Sky

Can’t change the weather no matter how much

I insist,

so

I’ll turn to

what I

can

do –

I can

love and laugh

listen and learn –

Hmm… it turns out I CAN change the weather.

Above And Beyond

Several strange synchronicities suggest

there’s a hidden

hand at work

behind

the

scene,

one that’s

willing to

help those who are

obviously oblivious like me.

A Poet’s Journey

Traveling down Beaverdam Creek Road, I

 realize there are

no beavers

here and

no

dam –

no creek

either. If

there’s deep meaning 

here, the poet in me should have found it.

Recalibration

Friends helped me pull the circuit breaker that

stopped the crazy

circular

loop of

thought

and 

feeling

running through

my system. Once

stilled, I felt a sudden surge of wisdom.

On Reflection

I’d like to think it was me and not its

own reflection

that drew that

sparrow

to

my

window –

ah it’s back –

that eternal

 romantic versus realist duel.

Insight

It’s funny how our vision improves when

we open our 

eyes, unseal

our hearts

and

let

the doors

of our minds

swing wide and free –

something not encouraged by Fox tv.
