SIMPLE LESSONS
(12/2/10)


some
days
I do know
that everything
is plainly there
for my
understanding

the wisdom
in ordinary
objects

situations

people

but most
days
I struggle

there's
so much
to learn
from that
which I am likely
to ignore
in the course
of my self
important
rounds

society
sucks me in
to what it considers
mandatory

pressing

vital

and I play
along
oh
so well

today
I will make
it a point
to walk calmly
outside

kneel down
upon the simple
ground

press
my palms
to the
earth

and hopefully
realize

appreciate

adore

my insignificance
as an individual

my interconnected
all encompassing
importance
as one
minute spark
in a cosmic web
of consciousness

I hope
to be released
from the
ignorance
of my
learning
