Morning Warning

Yesterday’s morning walk just didn’t feel the same. The conditions were practically identical – cool sunshine, birds singing etc… and yet I felt different. It felt different. I had a slightly dizzy sensation and the birds were seeming to sing in cautionary tones.


This morning as I open to

The Words

I hear Wait

I hear Pace Yourself

I hear

We are in this for the Long Run

I find myself feeling slightly annoyed by the unpoetic uttering of my winged messengers

who coo cautiously from up there

on their high horse

How on earth can such pragmatic suggestion possibly take aesthetic form?

Of course, my feathered friends have little patience

for my ego’s expectation

continuing to whistle their unhindered advice

with fearless love

as I descend the golden path

and allow it to

sink in

  1. The long run … perhaps never-ending … perhaps humanity is engaged in a transformation of overall lifestyle (caution among others, work-from-home, rethinking consumption habits) … perhaps we are witness to a new, improved us … perhaps we should be grateful. (I’m working on gratitude – between angst and grief.)

  2. LOL, Sam. I often find myself feeling slightly annoyed by the unpoetic utterings of my messengers. Still, if they’re saying it, it’s worth hearing and heeding. Days would blend into one another if there wasn’t something different about each of them. Embrace it. 🙂
