Growth Pushes Up From Below 2013

Growth Pushes Upwards From Below


Sitting on the toilet seat

I watch my polished toenail,

A white bit sticking out,

Showing, growing from below.

Ah, think I, “It’s all like that”.


Jumping to the end, I see

It’s all about re-forming mind,

An under-mind.

From thereon upwards

With its threads,

Synapses taking self’s life outwards

Into right instinctive choices –

Bright, light, great instinctive choices,

So restrained,

You could not even call them hunches –

More, direct & un-reflected bunches.

How agreeable this thought instinct is.

How enjoyable its business,

Growing, as it were, from nowhere

To where nature turns to actor.
