Start Singing

by Sudha (12/8/15)

this moment offers
a brief quiet space
amidst the coming and going
of thoughts and distractions

fleeting and narrow
the heart is easily broken
like the line of migratory birds
sweeping through a late autumn sky

nonexistent retoric
intention stays just long enough
to be a mystery, a healing
and a frustration

to think back on better days
is to recall the tragedy or victory
of surviving one thing
or falling at the feet of something else

where am I in all this
a pillar to a post to a pillar
or just a journey between the two
past to future then past again
then or then... why never now

stop thinking
stop thinking
stop thinking
slow down
start singing
Hari OM Hari OM Hari Hari Hari OM
