Look out
Look in 
Just think
Not robotic
Be human
We feel
Too much
Not enough
What a dance!

My Meditative Mind

No light
No sound
Doors closed
Curtains shut
Mind off
Am I doing this right?
This can't be right

Now : Poem

Looking forward,



Glancing back,



Look in the mirror,

Solitary Stroll : Poem

Fresh air to the lungs and the soul.

A stretch of the legs, an expansion of the mind.

A moment of solitude, surrounded by life.

A patch of nature, in a concrete jungle.

Then home to life, smiles and love.

The Now

Committing, doing, achieving. Wanting isn’t enough. We all spend too much time dreaming, I certainly do. I want to change; attitudes, work, life. But how to do it? It just seems too much, too impossible.

Self-doubt. Too old, too set in my ways. Where to start? Never enough time. Excuses.

The solution, one step. The now. Not the destination, but the journey. Sounds simple, but the mind wanders. Stay focused, the present is all that matters.

Make a choice, commit to the now.
