Everyday Moments


I scribbled down these microscopic verses as part of my commitment to writing daily during times I felt I had nothing to say. I like to think of them as little "icons" - thoughts drawn from daily life that deserve meditation more than a passing glance.


Breathe in

Breathe out

But I didn't need to tell you that

Did I?

I looked in the mirror and wondered:

am I the Observer

or the Observed?

I knew a man

with a nice new house

and a shiny car.

Or did I?

I bought some new shoes yesterday,

but they won't fit until next week,

when I've walked and worn them in.

I'm a bonfire.

Well, I'm a pile of kindling and logs,

but it's raining pretty hard.

Which is better:

rain or fire?

Why is waking up

so damn hard?

And why is pushing that button

for a seven-minute delay

so damn easy?
