Mindful Poetry

It doesn’t interest me

how old you are.
I want to know

looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon…
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened

from fear of further pain.
I want to know
if you can sit with pain

without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.
I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human. …

Distant Traffic
Kids talking and playing
My breathing
The drone of an airplane in the distance
Wind chimes
Distant lawn mower
A nearby truck passing by
My heart beating
Wasps and bees buzzing around
A faint, high-pitched buzzing sound

The most surprising sound is the last one.  I’m not sure if that was an insect or even external.
