mindfulness

being in the present is
a necessary pause

there are secrets that we miss, like
gold tulips as yet underground
ripe with promise, when our eyes are locked
firmly on sooner or later and our
thoughts linger on dropped connections,
the line done raging and long since
fallen silent

what are you feeling? is there an ache, an itch
or a background process, programmed to run in a
continuous loop

and is it overdue for revision?

when you redraw your border, who
will you exclude?
