In the similar manner
that I have to remind myself to breathe while eating,
I acknowledge that my attention can crave
even more than I can take.
I remind myself to slow down
with the people I let into my more than occassional thoughts.
& I ask why not try to transfer this pace
to other aspects of my life;
buidling a talent,
But my energy speaks for me
& the vessel of my body obeys.
I go where my mind takes me,
I'm influenced by my own ways.
The past may provide suggestive signs
& I could follow them if it seems comfortable.
I may wander until I'm tired
& disenchanted by my own chaos.
But I could find a moment of my own clarity & beauty
& peace of mind may find me.
