I was told I must
in some kind of obvious way,
because I prefer to hide in the wonder
of my life,
to stay quiet and even rather
To drink the nectar
instead of more company
than is good for me,
like too much wine
that would make me unrecognizable
My thirst is for
the clarity of my thoughts,
the true rhythm of my heart,
and the wakefulness of my soul.
Although, in a way, I do seek
overindulging in the softness
of my cats and their doggedness, too –
the same to be said about nature
as it intoxicates my life with meaning
and escape from meaning,
and the passions that make me teeter
on the edge of becoming unrecognizable
to everyone but myself.
‘To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.’ ~ William Blake
