an even finish for the tortoise and the hare

The nothing feels good tonight
no prying eyes
hysterical history = naught
open and calm
deep within a quiet thought
nothing to spill
full on empty = content
less and more IS both
simple linear strokes
walk or run

The journey balances the pin drop pause
nothing is left behind
don’t need to find the ten
9 can play symmetry with 6
heaven for mind to siesta with the muse
curled up spooning
inside Number 8
juice = smile
colours = you
CONSEQUENCE has left the building

an even finish for the tortoise and the hare by 

When there are no boxes that need ticking,unpacking,finding,sorting, tidying, restoring, hiding, lifting, sending, wrapping, changing, organizing, recycling,burning,painting, opening, filling,destroying, sharing,…….

Those are the times when the hum of nothing is a very different kind of contented music.
I feel good tonight :O)

Feelings and words fall on to the page
Sometimes they bite back
Sometimes they tug on our sleeve
Sometimes they have a cheeky grin
They stay once a page has found them
Words are faithful to us even in the dark

  • Hi Andrea
    I was not sure if this would work….. was in a very ‘blank and peaceful’ space which is often not good for writing but I just played along the page and this came to be.
    Many thanks for your most kind praise. xx

    The hum of nothing just sounds so beautiful this morning…
    open and calm
    deep within a quiet thought
    full on empty = content
    less and more IS both
    I’ll go for the walk, before nothing fills with no things, of no consequence…
