wisdom poem

Today I want to write a poem
about wisdom
about not overworking
about remembering balance
and breath
about not pushing one more
task into every overflowing day

I got up extra early
to write this poem
about being gentle with
my self, giving over room
to wander through the hours
with empty hands and no list.

I love that poem I was going
to write this morning, while
sipping that second cup of coffee
But that’s not the poem I wrote.
Maybe later. I don’t have time
to write right now

  1. Thank you so much for throwing me a lifeline and bringing me back to your wonderful poems! I have missed them so much more than I realised. It feels like coming home. I too need to make time for the things that matter. XXX Deborah
