The Shifting Now 2012

The Shifting Now

 

I judge my life

By what I really need:

My shifting now.

 

I ask my husband

To do such and such.

He doesn’t touch it

For the next three years.

He boxes me between the ears

With words:

Kind, loving, always funny

Which, before I know it

Leave me laughing and distracted,

Navigating badly

And not getting what I wanted.

 

Do I really need it at that moment? No.

I wanted and may still

Want such and such completed;

But I can’t compete

With values and priorities,

Reasons that could make one hate.

 

Instead I wait,

Diverted and content;

In some accepting and postponing way,

Indifferent,

Attention shifted in a now

All new.
