Poetry of Daily Life

By: Candice Dick
18th February 2015
Creativity, journalling, poetry, drawing or any number of creative endeavours are or can be powerful ways to integrate right and left, upstairs and downstairs parts of the brain.  Today I played with a poem to the roller coaster of moments, days and life in all it’s cruel, crazy, beauty.  Take a read.  I hope you enjoy and perhaps it inspires you to use a spare moment in a queue or waiting for a meeting or even in the bathroom to jot down a few ideas of how your life looks like through creative eyes.
Daily Life! 
Life! Racing, Calm, Joyful, Erratic
Defend, Resist, Fight
Pause.
Relax, Dissolve,
Surrender
Discover
Open. Breathe. Bliss.
Beep!
Distracted, Reply, Absorbed,
 Next,
Move on,
Do, Doing.
Clock!
Rush, Monitor, Gauge
Panic!
Agitate, Focus
This, This,
That,
This
Tension, Pressure,
Control!
Notice.
Breathe. Stillness.
Exhale.
Let go
Be present.
Again
Calm, Joyful
Erratic
Life!
