Thoughts clear
As
Water
Flushes
The remains of the day
Down
Unseen pipes
To
A place
Far
From
The soapy bubbles
That
Caress fingers
While
Sliding
From
Scrubbing sponge
To
Stained porcelain


Then
Washing away attachment
To
The things
Clinging
To
Visible surfaces
And
Allowing
Release
From
What
Has
Become trapped
Within
The walls
Of
Cluttered minds

Walking
On
The shady side of the street
Cools me
As
The clip of my stride
Quickens
Pumping
Blood
Through
My body
At
A rate
That
Would cause
Other liquids
To boil

While
The leaves
Of
Canopying branches
Fan
My head
As
They are stirred
By
The same breezes
That
Dance
Between
My thoughts

Learning
To tie my shoelaces
Was
One of the most difficult things
I have had to learn

Measuring
The right amount
Of
Lace
To make a bow

Learning
How
To precisely twist the lace
To prevent a knot
That would take longer
To undo
Than it did to make

Or

Tying them
Tight enough
To avoid
Tangling myself
In loosened laces
And
Tripping
Falling headfirst
Due to my haste
To complete
The task

Since
I have learned
To tie my shoelaces
The simplicity of it
Makes me wonder
Why
It had been
Difficult
To learn

Because

Loving you
Was not learned
It came
Simply
Without thought
Without trial
And
Its only difficulty
Is trying
To measure it
In adequate portions
So it will never
Run out

My thoughts
Often
Turn to you
Knowing that you struggle
To wade
Through oceans of diversions
Threatening to sink you
Like crushing waves
In to the needful lives of others


Who demand
You abandon
Your truest desires
And
Allow your spirit
To be buried
Beneath sands
On the floor
Of
A cold murky place
To be forgotten

But
I remember you
So
I cast out a net
Woven with positive intentions
To support
The steady ascent
Of
Your light
To
The surface

Half full
With
Clarity-concealing drops
That
Collect
To
Clutter
The corners
Of
The deep vessel
Cradling
This
Solitary life

Half full
With
Happiness
And
Hidden
Hope-filled thoughts
That
Mix
With
Fresh ideas
Opening me
To
Wonder
About
What
This world
Could be
