P.E.A.C.E.

This is not poetry. The last year has been very illuminating. I had a list of things to do daily. This is the super revised version. When I wrote it out I discovered it had the acronym peace. Which amused me with it’s metaness. I thought you all might enjoy it and it is good for me to share this kind of thing.

Peace:
meditation
laughter
social interactions

Experience:
travel (international/local)
climbing rocks

Activeness:
hiking, walking
yoga, pilates
rope climbing

Creativity:
daily writing, poetry
photography
crafty

Education:
reading
school
translations

Je vois à travers.

Waking, lids gummed shut
listening
The darkness behind them
gentle, sleepy
A crackle through it
static shocks
Anxiety banished for months
touching the inner
The list of possibilities
calmly gone over
One smooth pebble of thought at a time
slipping across mindscapes
Discovering the one that soothes
buzzing instantly quieting
Blessed silence returning
waters stilled
The time is now
to write, to plan, to proceed
Finished are the long months of waiting
only actions lay before me
