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

New Math

on October 17, 2018

My life no longer balances
Clutter on my calendar
Stifles what I care about
Time to sort the mess

Addition equals frittering
Subtraction brings tranquility
Peace and beauty come with space
I can do the math

Give me the moon in a darkened sky
Sunbeam silhouettes on my wall
Raindrops’ gleam on windowpane
Leaves attune to season’s change

    This describes very well the kind of life I am now enjoying. I just need to look outward as often as you do. I am trying!

  5. This is the kind of math that even I can comprehend. Beautiful, thank you

    Thank you, Rose. Thanks especially for commenting on this poem today of all days. I sat down at my computer to begin to describe how my life has been transformed in the past year. I didn’t remember that the beautiful words were mine. You give me confidence that I can now write about my life lived in a most unpoetic circumstance. ❤
