DO NOTHING IN THE TOO MUCH


NaPoWriMo 2022.  A Pantoum

~

Do Nothing in the too much

Many choices disable clarity

Stacked on layers of possibilities

The weight of all of it is crushing

~

Many choices disable clarity

Give pause to the knowing that waits in the shadows

The weight of all of it is crushing

Breath is caught in the in between

~

Give pause to the knowing that waits in the shadows

Stillness allows the inner light to rise and shine

Breath is caught in the in between

Exhale the burden host of overwhelm

~

Stillness allows the inner light to rise and shine

Stacked in layers of possibilities

Exhale the burden host of overwhelm

Do nothing in the too much

FEAST ON THE SURRENDER


13 Nov. 2019

Lean into the lonely places

Lay down with the shadow dancers

Listen deep into the old stories

   of imaged truths poured from

   the vessel of many yesterdays

~

Dosed in the blood of lineages

Down the drain of old hopes

Dictates passed down in the all around

    making a depository of other’s

    dreams and imaged forecasts

~

Held in the spaces of unrequited

Hid in the in-between of longing and yearn

Hold on to the thin cord of relationship

    for memories seek safe harbor in the

    stripping away what was never yours

~

Shed what was not the gift of you

Single out the spacious self’s dream

Silence the busy minds need to know

   for there is knowing in the quiet voice

   of the heart waiting for your listening

~

Feast on the surrender of release

Find comfort in the lonely places

Free up the impose of other’s dreams

   as you feel the fullness of finding yourself

   unfolding perfectly as you are
