Mindfulness

Reflection is in solitary –

wholeness for the self.

Transcendence is for community –

oneness in the other.

Exploring the darkness despite fear…

expectantly waiting.

Imploring the lightness for respite peace…

without demanding.

Contemplation centers –

twisting and turning mind and body.

Rumination rounds –

pushing and pulling  soul and heart.

“Oops” affirms accountability

and I change.

Quid pro quo yields responsibility

and God changes.

Mindfulness sees the possible

and embraces the need

Mindfulness dreams the impossible

and satisfies the want

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
