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.
