Drink

I worry the glass.
I worry the water.
I worry them both
half way.

Let go of fullness
and empti-
ness.
Let go of wetness.
Let go of glass-
ness
and half-
ness.

You are thirsty.
Drink the water.
Wash the glass.

  1. Here’s one for you..from the Greeks no less (from Wikipedia)
    Sophrosyne….
    “The term suggests that lifelong happiness may be obtained when one’s mental needs are satisfied, and it resembles the idea of enlightenment through harmonious living. It is a nearly lost Classical ideal, but is enjoying some revival today with its emphasis on individuals living within the limits of reason and nature, this being achieved through practical wisdom and self-knowledge. Parallels abound in eastern thought, in Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism. The Analects of Confucius, for example, has several passages on humility that resemble discussions of the Greek ideal.”
    LIke your poem…!

    • Definitely cut the crap. I am learning what an important distinction is to be made between “simple” and “easy”, and how the simplest things are often the most difficult.
      Thanks Miri–
