2020

has ushered in

a year of 
careful listening
dedicated watching, actually
seeing

not, as the world would have me,
superficial glances at everything at once.
rather,
  a stopping
  a staring
  a studying
to see 

for the very first time.

Perhaps this is what the Divine
means by knowing. 
I don't know
but it seems so. 

About wlebolt

Life comes at you fast. I like to catch it and toss it back. Or toss it up to see where it lands. I do my best thinking when I'm moving. And my best writing when I am tapping my foot to a beat no one else hears. Kinesthetic to the core.
