Merely My Thoughts

These are merely my thoughts

Shared upon a page

Hopes of stirring

Shape-shifting

Transmuted thought for another

Read the words

Feel them

Embody them

Do nothing more if so choose

Darkened days

Hardened hearts

Awaken the Spirit

Light emitting thought

Turn away

Embrace All There Is.

Artist Unknown

Sitting with the Broken Pieces

What’s this scattered across the floor

Thousand piece puzzle

Broken glass

Million pieces all the same

Sitting

Staring

Into space

Lost in thoughts of present moment

Struggle to pair or piece

Interlocked

Adhered by other means

Resist

Accept

For all have a purpose

Assembling not required

Where does the joy come from?

Putting together of scattered pieces?

Merely in the presence of all there is?

Sitting with broken pieces

Joy was always present.
