Poem, Three Steps To Awakening, 12-23-11

Fulfilling duties forgetting song
making your bed but eating so wrong
correcting others but improving none
scheduling your life but savoring not
planning your future, weakening the plot.

Losing your footing, falling off guard,
odds are against your plodding false start
In the void wanting direction not safe
waking to find, all is well and not late.

Forgetting details, forgetting time,
lost in grammatical thought and in rhyme
seeing geometry, finding new veins
seeing complexity, simply in frame
knowing the truth of unspoken rules
buying existence by creative jewels.

--EVE Featherstone
