(Although I thought I could)
It turns out I cannot really do
But it turns out, what I can
But I have a greater challenge than that.
To just listen,
Just this, right now
When I do this one thing, and let go of everything else
(including- my -ultimate- multi-tasking- heroine -self-and-the-recognition-I’ll-get-for-doing-more-and-more-and-all-at-once)
Ease of release follows,
and with it,
its silent mantra:
Just for love of it.
And because contentment
Love elephant and want to go steady?
