3 Pieces

 

3 Pieces of gratitude fell upon the floor and when I saw them lying there I couldn’t wait to look for more:

1.  I am grateful for moments of good friendship

2.  I am grateful for my relentless penchant for wondering

3.  I am grateful for my autonomy

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

Struggling to write
Need to quiet the noise
Ratchet it down
To focus
And not be distracted

I begin with larger things
The best form of government?
Life after death?
Parallel universes?
I think I think too much

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

No traction
I don’t know enough
What can I say?
No new thoughts.
Nothing to contribute

Then pompous arrogance
Trying out snotty things like
How many Gods don’t you believe in?
Zero? One? More than one?
Doesn’t feel right

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

Need to clear my mind
Too many distractions
Take a break
Walk
Try again

Relax
Concentrate
Lady Bug crawling across my desk
Ignore it
Focus

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

What do Lady Bugs do at night?

Damn it!

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..
