Mindless Scribbling

08 Jul


My heart is balanced with nothing.

Bags of emptiness, once full of expectations,

finally, have become

light as a feather.

    have become
    light as a feather.

    Gives a feeling ZQ that life’s distractions are all in the past now.

    There are echoes here of the Book of Ecclesiastes: “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity!”

    I feel that way too sometimes. Light or empty?

    You make it seem like a relief, as in “lighten up.” Yet the word “emptiness” pulses dangerously mid-poem. Good stuff. As I get lighter (in my heart), I’m finding a love of paradox.

    Ah, but isn’t it wonderful to travel light, ZQ? I’m enjoying that more and more as I grow old.

    It is kind of cool when those bags get lighter. When morning birdsong and a good cup of coffee are Enough. I love this, kiddo.

    There are times, I wish my soul was so. Given the grief that we walk through, during our lives.
