The Passing, of a Day

When begins insurmountable

task,

the waking anxiety,

a desire to burrow

rather than the music of the day.

 

We all seemingly rise to

a pattern

so familiar, oddly routine,

sometimes forgetting

simple beauty.

 

Our lives caught up in the now,

my mother used to say,

he’s a now

person referring to life,

whenever my depression would fail me.

 

Inside the passing

of hours

a remarkable dream,

perhaps a positive

an outcome of smiles.

 

Inside the passing of a day,

so much magic

allows the human condition

to love,

to understand, to breathe, to live.

Constant Simplicity

Rather than exhausting energy

quiet the mind at sunrise,

a day of relaxation

to gather in the threads

~

Of a puzzle of fabric

holding trees together,

only meant for a tired body

to swing, to lounge, to nap

~

Under a streaming light’s presence,

without a worry on our mind,

except to look at life naturally.

We do give ourselves a panic,

~

A need to understand,

to fix, to change, to validate,

when really all we can do,

is be who we are in the moment.

~

Rather than try to figure out

the laws of human nature,

might we instead sit down

for a minute of leisure.

~

I wanted to tell you again

how much I miss your smile,

your words, your wisdom

are all fond memory today.

~

If today the pavement

my feet caress for miles,

may that be my only stress,

carry the mind along for the ride.

Daybreak Solitude

daylight outside my window 2

Glance to the sky nature stream light

the day ahead soft, serene, only alive

a wisp of breeze tests tree limb’s might

speak silent inside a  dream we thrive

~

To know a world we exist in with material

only awaits our action without expectation

this is absolute reality without the surreal

nature of knowing, without fear, trepidation

~

Mind wakeful in recognition, this opportunity

as a hummingbird will peaceful alight its nectar

so might our own testing the ware of humanity

seek a challenge to breathe freely now the victor

~

Inside the grace of this sunlight’s brilliant release

Welcome energy, today we live with sweet peace.
