the writing

it often amazes me how I will write something completely..

well.. what seems to me.. to be completely

arbitrary.. only to discover a day or two later

that it is in fact a poem.. It reminds me that sitting down to write..

just to write.. when I may not have anything to say

is a form of acknowledging

the moment

that I am


acknowledging that all moments are like any other moments..

just beautiful and mysterious..

and just because the


thud of my

brain is

conjuring up dissonant thoughts does not

take away from the mystery in that moment..

and by picking up

a pen and writing

a little tap into that

beautiful gentle world is

opened up.
