Wakefulness

Stop, pay attention,

this is your life

we’re talking about here

 

It’s so easy to loose yourself,

become distracted

by vague imaginings

and heartfelt murmurings

 

The road to forgetfulness

is just around the corner

Fine tune your mind

scritch scratch out a life

running on full cylinders

 

You’ve spent too long

in somnolent bliss

barely a moment offered

to true knowledge

and structured action

 

Be wary of indolent

breezes fluttering through

your consciousness

Seek a chillness to the air

stirring spent senses alive

waking your mind

to life’s preciousness

 

Be Alive

say to yourself –

I Matter!

 

 

 

Who are you?

Who are you –
the child I have
never known?
I hear your laughter
sparkling and fanciful tones
rich and vibrant
or your anger
tempetuous, lightening
flashes of a summer storm.

I gaze with rapt amazement
at your studied countenance
taking every detail
into account as you
memorize each facet
of your existence.
A pack-rat, stuffing
incidentals into corners
for future use.

I listen to your
flamboyant giety
both mocking and
relishing the life
you call your own.
Sizzling in the excitement
of the moment.

You are . . .
a treasured gift
never allowed to bloom
until playing dress-up
was no longer a game
. . . you are
part of me.
Rarely acknowledged,
always sought.
