MONDAY– A VERY COMMON DAY

Monday.

A very
common day.

Shaman-, layman-,
indeed all man- and woman-day,
and also precious-small-ones-day.

Begin again,
refreshed or weary;
and know,
that for all
the whole wide world,
it’s all one day,

in which we walk,
we work, we learn,
we rest, we play,
we pray,

and start to get,
not just in head,
but even in each
deep gut turn,
how it feels true and best
in the times when we the least
from our bright-vision-fed,
bold-and-steady-action-led
directions and intentions stray.

Let’s you and I
discover
and recall these things,
and not forget,
and start into
our surest possible
first steps,
right here, right now,
this second,
minute, moment, hour–

for
only once we
up and start
will we see how
and truly get along our way,

so, yes!–
right now!–
breathe, stretch, get set–
and set out that first foot,
today!

  1. I feel this in my gut, it is a mantra and a chant for the modern world. Loved it Elaine, what talent you are! Excellent poem!

  2. Thank you again, TheFeatheredSleep. I appreciate that, especially as that is what I hope my work does for people. Best of luck to you as you continue to move forward in your very own best way. :~)
