catch a moment…

I want
to be nobody for now
watch the sky
turn colors
while sipping tea

then somebody
pops in again
and screams for more
haven’t got much time left
gotta gotta gotta

what’s the hurry
let the breeze catch me
why
rush
destiny

re-arranging
pieces of my mind
while
the wind echos
centuries

catch
moments
before
they
fall…

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
