Slip into my thoughts
For we are all connected before we are born into another day
Before the onslaught of words into our brains
Only feelings and even those are vague
Curling like smoke
Warm like flames
Then my eyes open
And the words came
And you were gone
Buried deep within the maelstrom of thought feeling thought feeling thought feeling
Break of morning
Another day begins
Life slips between my fingers
It’s only in those first few seconds between dreaming and awake
When I remember all that makes this life important
And sometimes my heart breaks
A slippery plate
*Its difficult to stay on top of all the people in our lives who need a phone call, a message, a prayer. Social media provides a portal that we think connects us to who is important – it’s easy to believe we’ve covered all those relationships.
A heart here, smiling emoji there, high five and a joke. But beneath it all we live lives that are deeply fractured and disconnected due to the polarity and singular individualism of relying on such a cold virtual world.
I’m off to the pool, hope there is a lane free, should be, the season is changing and it’s cooler. Have a beautiful day.
