Write Here Now


Writing in circles
Comes naturally to me.
Must be the
“Staring at the belly button” syndrome.

So, now, how are you?
Have you thought about tomorrow,
Or do you not concern yourself
With anything but now?

Wise choice, really.
I tend to think about tomorrow a lot.
Maybe it is a waste of time,
Or, at least, a waste of energy.

Maybe if I point that energy
Towards right now,
I might come up with something

I might do something daring!
I will do something dangerous!

I will risk my life!
Or, perhaps,
I will just sit here,

And write a poem.
