New Fibs

Time
now
for a
routine break
to focus the mind
It’s a good day to write some fibs

When
my
body
is cranky
and my mind unclear
I know it’s time for a bike ride

Last
night
I lay
down on the
sidewalk and watched clouds
while Aviva picked peonies

All
my
wholesome
intentions
vanish in the face
of creemees and chocolate sprinkles

At
dawn
children
come downstairs
raisin toast, butter
and a walk with the cardinals

It’s
plain
to see
the absence
of lovingkindess
many dark corners of the world

Can
you
hold that
painful place
softly in your hands
as a nest holds a little bird?

Life
here
right now
all we get
is one-stop shopping
unless you are a cat, of course

Or
our
dog, for
that matter
Juke is so evolved
we’re sure this is his final round

Why
not
try stuff
my motto
never seems to change
It’s helpful to have one – what’s yours?

Get
stuck
in mud
It can be
good for skin and soul
to stand still for a change (can’t it?)

Rise
up
Unite
The truth is
not hidden away
It’s the sun, the sky, and the trees
