Unbound

My heart licks it’s lips in anticipation.

My mouth widens into a joyful grin.

 

I am doing what makes my soul sing.

 

It needs no trumpets,

No accolades,

No gold stars,

or publicity.

 

Heart and soul,

 move my hands and mind.

Creating art, whatever that may be.

Without earthly tethers,

I am free.

Piscean Experience

Swimming in and out

of the here,

 and

the now.

My mind is a fish that

dives into the depths of ideas.

Emerging to the surface to

say, “hello loves.”

Trying not to get caught in perception-nets of

the ‘now’ that felt like

the past,

and something I knew

before.

   Déjà vu, yes and sometimes,

something else, possibly more.

The Sound of Success

Successes, yes, acknowledge them.

But notice how much applause you need for them.

 

Maybe you only need your own,

clapping hands.

Not the

clap,

clap

clap, clap

clap, clap, clap,

clap, clap, clap, claps

of hundreds in unison.

Because that noise,

eventually

drowns

the truth

of what

your heart beats

for.

Bench/Bitch-Marks & Soap Bubbles

Seeing the bench marking your ass

from sitting down and getting

goals done –

for someone else,

it wore, but didn’t hurt.

 

Don’t stress about those bench, or bitch-marks,

because that won’t help your dreams hitch.

 

Pitch your dream to God, the Universe,

it’ll get tossed back to you.

Maybe not how you imagined,

but bigger than that.

A rolling shimmery ball,

like those iridescent soap bubbles you blew with the wind

way back when.

Now,

it’s so big and radiant,

You can’t put your arms around it,

or break it.

 

It’s yours –

to transform,

to follow,

to share.

Attention, My Pet

Focused seemingly with a laser point stare,

Attention seems fixated, aware.

Then you sparkle and shine with a smile.

Attention’s thoughts chase your words,

scampering, bounding,

pouncing!

Suddenly, Attention sees a flicker nearby.

What is it?!

A new idea, endeavor, creation to nudge,

knead and trounce.

 

Yes, Attention has moved on for now,

But as she pads away swiftly, do know

she’ll be back to purr you to her side.
