Shining Brighter

Waking up into heaven. The sun shines all day long. Even the moon reflects the sun’s light. Clouds come, clouds go. It rains. It storms. The sun shines all day long. The tiny boat drifts off. The wind sighs. The moon appears as all else fades and moon beams dance on the waves.

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry–all forms of fear–are caused by too much future and not enough presence.” ~Eckhart Tolle

This shoe lace flops about dangerously,
about to become two separate pieces to be dragged
along pavement, slapped in a puddle,
tangled in a bush that diverts my way home.

I bend to tie it together and wonder
how many times I have performed this task.
"Just once," I hear. "Right now, only once."

There is a sigh, relief. The little door springs open
and the melody of a tiny songbird pierces that thought.
