poetry fix: spring {being vs. to-doing}

on 06-06-2012

Writing Monday’s post about my quest toward more “being” and less “to-doing,” reminded me of something I wrote for Pin-spired, my National Poetry Month series of daily poems sparked by random Pinterest images.

 

spring

there will be

a scritch-scratch list

of this&that

calling    doing    typing

pushing    pulling

digging in     dragging out

listening hard   working harder

and then even more -ings

that never made it

out of my head to be

scritch-scratched

but not today

today

we’re stretched out in now

with sweet spring all around

whispering

just be
