Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: RX For An Introvert

on January 6, 2018

Holidays over
Return of reality
Time for stock-taking

People-filled moments
Exciting rich nourishment
Stuffed me to bursting

Moorings abandoned
Flying carpet crash-landed
Lost touch with myself

Crave balm of silence
Time for quiet introspection
Awaiting my words

    I know where you are coming from. Fine words.

  3. I like the magic carpet crash landing–totally get that.
    If I dont’ have my me time, I’m no good for anyone

  4. You and me, Girl. I tell ‘ya. Our Christmas is still up although the hustle is over. The decorations in our house stay up until Epiphany, and then it is really and suddenly dark in our house. But next week, son Stephen returns to teaching, the week after husband Cliff, and then, then….then the house will be quiet. I love my boys…..
