Mind Games

What harbinger is this
and why am I not convinced?

Cynicism wants concretes,
feeds complaints,
exaggerates,
retreats

Need to confront
this wall-building,
fight to retain
Spirit’s message –
deescalate fear’s grip.

  1. STUNNING image – sobering poem. We’ve just begun a new moon cycle – a time to listen for guidance from beyond self. Your 2nd stanza says it beautifully – confront our inner cynics and listen to Spirit’s guidance. (SOOO difficult! My inner cynic keeps picking at details, nagging, nagging … I’m reading this aloud to said inner cynic right now. Thank you, VJ.)
    Curious – is the image sun or moon?
