A calm mourning

Mourning the night,

mourning the break of day.

I’m a handful of hours into my morning as synchronistic times approach.


How are you today? I ask My Lord.

I hear nothing.

It’s Wednesday already. I ponder where the first 2 days of this week went.

Time, as illusionistic as it is, seems to dwell on almost all of our minds.

This, I try to avoid as I shame myself for checking the clock on my phone.

There’s no reason for it.

Nor am I in a rush for anything.

I’ve been 23 for a month now and I can’t imagine how the rest of this year will go.

I am open to anything. Including any hurt it may bring.

My Haku lays across the floor and cries for things I don’t know.

Does she long for the liberation I do?

I imagine it’s the speed of her heart, playing games with her mind.

I try to comfort her anxiety the best I can. There’s only so much I can do.

It’s Wednesday and I am here writing this to you.

Dear reader,

do you also feel that thing that is beyond?

Do you feel that knowing of something more?

I do…

How do you live with it so well?

Sometimes it keeps me up at night

and other times,

it beings me to tears.

For the most part, it provides me a smile

and something to think about when my mind begins to wander.

I hope your day is nice, whatever time it may be.

Tell the people of your town I said hello

and that there’s someone out there that cares for their thoughts

and for where their soul travels at night.

Enjoy this day the best you can;

I’ll be here if you need me.
