Keeping the NaPoWriMo Momentum Going

Do not divide
yourself.
You are not
a math problem.
You are not
a basket of eggs.

Do not worry about
where the world ends
and you begin.

That breeze blowing
is your inspiration too.
Claim it.

I am reading “A Year with Rumi” as part of my morning routine. I think that has influenced some of my poetry, including this one. I hope your morning includes something thoughtful and enjoyable.

He Said – She Said

“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” – Iain Thomas

Open

Go to the window
Earth’s curve waits for you
under wild skies
 
Run through the door
spin, sway, swing and play
 
Hinge
the circle
spill outside
boundaries fall before your feet
 
Breathe in heaven
swim with stars
 
Reach out
palms up in supplication
arms open
