#81. The Art of Nothingness
Today, we sway to the poetry of nothingness.
No lists. No check marks. No counters. No timers.
Today, we watch the colours of the butterflies
And listen to the rhythmic sounds of crickets
And feel the cool warmth whispered in the winds
Today, is the day you choose to take the time
and spend time in the wholeness of your soul,
in the hidden broken pieces you drag in tow;
the forgotten, buried and often ignored parts.
The damning shadows and the flaming light;
find, embrace and love them all in the silence.
It may not often make sense,
but it will always sense-make….
The parts you left behind,
those missing pieces that you must find
in the quietness of silent sounds
so that the noisy turmoil shall finally cease
and your spirit all of life’s moments may seize.
Search inside yourself.
Search shallow and deep waters.
The answers you seek are always within.
Embrace the magic of nothingness.
To think not and simply BE.
