Waking Poem, April 18, 2016
Today’s poem has taken a new direction from all the struggle and seriousness. I remembered my philosophy on trying and it is: “Don’t Try.” In not trying, I am doing or being and that is so much more true than trying. That is not to say that I do not believe in practice and conditioning because I do but in the moment of, I find that when I try to do or be – that I often fall short. However, when I stop trying, and do or be, it can be lovely.

In today’s poem, in the not trying, I also remembered that my default of thinking and speaking is very poetic. Its not because I try, it is just who I am. It was never something that I noticed or recognized about myself until I began to hear it over and over from my friends and acquaintances. They would often make comments of how poetically I spoke. I’m glad for every one that ever mentioned it as it served as an encouragement and I appreciate their support.

So in the poem, I woke from a nap and these thoughts went through my mind. I recognized a certain rhythm to them and thought they were nice. I think I should also mention that I am not one to take naps often but when I get up at 3:00am it is just the right thing to do.

Also, I enjoy writing quirky poems. This gets weighted down with life’s stresses sometimes but its nice to remember. Thank you for reading today’s poem and hope you enjoy.
