Writing the Unease
Topic : Daily Glimpses
Living with the feeling of unease.
That’s where I’m at now.
Sitting here with my son asleep on me.
His weight a grounding.
I do my day.
Play with my kids.
Get the bills paid.
I take care of me.
Practice yoga on the mat.
Sit in meditation.
Talk to friends.
Day in and day in and day out the unease never leaves.
Am I doing what I need in this life?
Begin to feel better.
The words on the page, like drops of release.
The memory of words spoken at me get a new home.
Words I’ve spoken get a chance to breath, freed from my chattering mind.
Things I’ve allowed to live in me now get a new home.
My bones feel lighter again.
And I can go on.
