Daily Practice

I fell into my own life today
guided by a growing need
to change my pace
to appreciate my days
and surroundings
to dance with the wind
dread nothing
open to pleasure

Softness ensues
as worlds open
and I fall between the cracks

perhaps not to come up
for a while.

Wild beast
in my arms
cat untended

I want to tame her
comb her
fuss with her

Finding more
places to hide
she will share
none of these

She is happy
to leave me
in exchange for
pure love.
