Sitting quietly, sipping a cappuccino, Johnny Cash’s One Piece at a Time playing in the background
I’m gazing out the window, looking for a sign of what to write.
Inspire me! I yell under my breath.
Where is that spark I’m needing to ignite this fire?
It’s there, I know it, hiding quietly behind its cloak of secrecy, toying with my psyche
The days go by in a blur, one melding into the next
How did I get here?
How did I come this far?
Snap out of it! The headlights scream back at me, as they flicker in the dreary light , zooming past one by one
Then a lull and an eerie bleakness permiates the atmosphere
Flashes in the distance, as we follow with intent.
The rush of wind whipping across wheels, sloshing through the rain, spraying with delight across the pavement
Where are we going?
How long till we get there?
Time keeps rushing, faster, faster, faster
Take a moment and surrender
Before we know it time has passed us by, and we’ll soon ask again…
How did we get here?
Life is not worth living, if we are living it in a blur.
Let it all sink in
Bask in the delight that surrounds us daily.
Embrace the little sparks that appear along the way, and turn them into that blazing inferno!
