It’s morning and the sun is still sipping
coffee behind the horizon.
The tops of trees and bamboo,
are the only ones privy to its brilliance.
As I begin a few familiar chores …
feeding the fish in their outside pond,
standing still in the morning air,
moisture wicking into my night clothes,
thinking about how to make coffee-
… my mind stumbles to discover the day of the week.
I relinquish my effort in the quest and realize,
it is today. My mind rushes in with TGIF,
as I think of the delineation
between work and play.
And then I pause-
TGIT … Thank God its Today
Of course … what else matters?
Life is best when alive!
Why wait for some condition to fulfill me?
What else really matters in this moment?
… Coffee would be nice and a Muffin 😉
And then I realize … it’s Tuesday as well.
