Immersed in the spiritual –
not yet fully present –
new beginnings,

so much easier
to go back to sleep
leave the living
to the younger
more energetic

surpassing me
clued in to
modern nuances

yet, even they
slumber, lulled
by a confidence
I too once donned,
before immersing
myself in the spiritual.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

And love your perspective … yes, let the younger generation(s) follow the current fads (they don’t yet, but we know that in time those too will fade into oblivion, replaced by something only THEIR “younger generations” comprehend. The perpetual shifting can do its thing w/o my supervision – I’ll go drift into the clouds, content.
