Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. On this busy week, I struggled with sleep then made up for it all last night. 🙂 It’s a green matcha tea morning, and I’d like to share a poem I wrote and intended to publish earlier this week. This way, I can get to the park with my dog sooner! I’ll drop by some of your Coffee shares later.
Another day to wake up, clean up, show up.
Realizing philosophizing is making me want to throw up.
So, today I’ll stop looking at the skies and wondering why
I’ll turn my gaze down to the creatures on the ground
The ones that surround and keep me company,
I will rise and shine like the birds chirping this morning,
the sunshine peeking over the trees providing light and warming
The dog that is sniffing at the door to be let out
Then asks to come back in with a bark that shouts,
“Thank you for the outing, but I want to be with you!
I’ll need an outing later, but there are other things to do.”
I reach out and let him ground me
Let his love and kid-like joy surround me.
It is what it is, beyond our control,
But you can still love life, deep in your soul
Can I forget for a moment, what baffles me
and live each moment joyfully?
