Sometimes…life rushes by too fast to catch in a word.
Feeling sands shift thoughts, concepts of mind blurred…
So, I took my micro-view tight ideas outside for a walk!
Far from the cacophony of voices and opinionated talk;
Immersed myself, tried to wrap my mind around silence…
I heard myself think… I ventured onward by persistence:
Wind’s breath stirs dry branches limbered by rising sap,
Clapping to celebrate the end of winter’s cold long nap!
I wait for color to reclaim the grey dessert sage in blue;
Not wanting to go back I tarry long, gathering each hue;
Spring-cleaning of mind and reorganizing heart’s closet,
Letting go the old and making room for new life deposit.
