the cycle of regret and holding on.

the cycle of regret and holding on.

I think I’ve never been a farmer

these fields lay fallow

from some neglect

of sown regret


I can see the sun-

sunlight strikes

this empty plot

barren crop

memories now

merely dust


steps dune dunes sand dunes

footprints worn in

from pacing rows

starved by drought

nothing grows


weighed down

by a plan of my own disillusion


where there was two

there is only one

the damn math

the answer

the equation

becomes none

so I must learn to farm again

guided by the sun

on another patch

in another place

I must abandon

what has gone

I must move on

from this field

sever the bond

that has been

long gone

long gone

travel on – “I must” I tell myself


I look back, for just one more glance

just so, I will not forget.

notes… I was watching a documentary on minimalism last night, I might not agree with all of it, but it got me to thinking, maybe I need to be a minimalist of the heart, I carry baggage way more than I should (I think, I’m not sure, but pretty sure), like material things misery can be a thing of comfort after a while, I am not saying I am miserable but I have some emotional hummel’s on my shelf as reminders, maybe I shouldn’t.  I can only try to be better and remind myself moment to moment life is better than the alternative by a long shot.  (this particular poem is something I wrote originally on 5.5.18 but re-wrote a bit today as I might do)

music for your consideration…

Taylor Deupree – Somi

This is minimalist ambient… and brilliant (if ya ask me), let it fall on you like rain on a summer day, relief and beauty in each drop, like slow motion hands of a visual clock, no harsh sounds, just the surround, of thought.
