A Poem for a Dark Day


Sitting in a forest

(My mind buzz buzzing

With petty squabbles

And slights and indecisions

And the vastness of inequality

And

What I’m going to eat for dinner

And

How I’ll pay the bills)

I hear birds singing

Leaves rustling

The noises of life, unstoppable

And am reminded:

I’m a part of this forest

On a mountain

This mountain in a country

This country in a continent

This continent in an ocean

This ocean in a hemisphere

This hemisphere in a world

This world in a solar system

This solar system in a galaxy

This galaxy in a milky way

This milky way in a universe

This universe in an infinity

This infinity in an eternity

And for a moment


My mind stops buzzing.
