when i empty


when i empty my thoughts

when I empty my thoughts
of the judgement and expectation

when feelings tied to my thoughts
dissipate like fog in the sunshine

then I am free
and life can flow through me

then I am awake
fully experiencing this moment
in all its subtlety and richness


* I took this photo of a phlox blossom in my back yard. I didn’t realize there was this beautiful critter upon it until I set up for my shot. What a delightful surprise!
