Poem for May 2, 2015

5-2 collageMay 2, 2015
Saturday – Dinner time – Home
Sunny, 60ºs
These certainly are my go-to colors. Haven’t done a page in almost 2 weeks and these are most comfortable. Interesting selection of words for today. Can’t wait to see how the poem will turn out. I can feel a connection between them and the thoughts and emotions that are just below the surface. Have been feeling quite stressed lately. Haven’t been making the time to jog or do a journal page – just work, work, work. Decided to make the time for both today. I need it!

Selected words:
persevere
fragments
largely
distraction
incomparable
adequate
come
before
patience

5-02 PoemPersevere

Distraction
So much work,
largely of my own making.
Pressure, stress
I must persevere.

This isn’t like me
When did this way
of living come to be?

I want to go back
to the life I had before.

Patience now –
capture the fragments of time
still available to me.
These are adequate – they must be.
A little each day yields
incomparable riches
in the end.
