Breathe In

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…

Struggling to write
Need to quiet the noise
Ratchet it down
Focus
Not be distracted

I begin with larger things
The best form of government?
Life after death?
Parallel universes?
I think I think too much

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…

No traction
Don’t know enough
What can I say?
No new thoughts.
Nothing to contribute

Then pompous arrogance
Trying out snotty things like
How many Gods don’t you believe in?
Zero? One? More than one?
Doesn’t feel right

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…

Need to clear my mind
Too many distractions
Take a break
Go for a walk
Try again

Relax
Concentrate
Ladybug crawling across my desk
Ignore it
Focus

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

What do Ladybugs do at night?

Damn it!

Breathe in
Breathe out
Ohmmmmmmmmmm…..

  1. Marv, it’s not polite to spy on my thoughts like this. How did you know I wondered what lady bugs do at night? This one made me smile 🙂
