"To Do or Not to Do"

To Do or Not to Do

                for Alex


There’s a hole in my to do list

which lets me peer through

to the other side of importance

where a murmuring stream

of consciousness 

breaks down

what is timebound

like water eroding rock


the so-called future

mapped out

like geography

becoming flimsy

while the lay of the land

below my windows

shows a gathering of violets

risen from their rhizomes

covering ground better than gossip.





[Poem was requested by my daughter Alex for her yoga teacher training. Thanks to The River Yoga community in Five Points, Denver for including it as part of their "200 Hour YTT Teach Out" class!]
