A Poem

I thought I was a multitasker, but
my mind is getting strecthed to thin
competing wants and needs and holes so deep
and not just my own

I toy with skipping meditation, as I
have these last few weeks, months, days
I feel the internal tuggling the disquiet within
the need to fall into be

Ooh, I recognize this emotion! Why it seems just a few weeks ago I was wallowing in such sensations. The irony, of course, is that we need meditation most when it is the least convenient. Peace :-d

Good evening, JS. I feel for your totally changing life. The poetry speaks! I wouldn't let meditation slide though, it's too hard to get it back once it's gone.

Come listen to George Carlin's Stuff routine at my place. Maybe it will help you find a perspective.

Hugs!

Nice to see the poet back in residence: remember, you're a New England poet now: a Green Mountain one at that.

Multitasking can really stretch us thin, as you so poetically point out.

And yes, the quietude of meditation restores some of that fullness.
