“Motivation” ©Adrienne D. Oliver 2017

First lesson, daughter, take your time when presented with time

unfamiliar

structured terrain with sharp edges

to your sand filled toes

Daughter, breathe into your belly

Fill your lungs to capacity and let the seat of your emotions expand

 

time past is nearer, no further away than

a bicycle rolling past

a car creeping down a narrow lane

Daughter, let time spent with rubix cube be most important

rather than smooth monochrome colors on each side

enjoy the twisting and turning of reds, yellows, blues, greens

all jumbled up

 

the joy is in the approaching…the living real and raw

    A big yes to “breathe into your belly/Fill yourlings to capacity and let the seat of your emotions expand.”

    Love that last line, too: “the living real and raw” and all the explicit images that lead up to it. Thanks, Adrienne. I needed to read this one today.
