Mindfulness Monday – Life

Once again, wise words — to allow life to find us, to relax into it . . .
And, another piece of Wendy’s wonderful art.

Picnic with Ants


“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

~ E.M. Forster

“Rather than being disheartened by the uncertainty of life,
what if we accepted it and relaxed into it?
What if we said,
‘Yes this is the way it is;
this is what it meant so be human,’
and decided to sit and down and enjoy the ride?”

~Pema Chödrön

Void – Commentary Po.em

Mark has composed another commentary po.em. This commentary stream has been particularly rich in imagery which Mark has used to the’s advantage. Stop by his for his own, and our combined thoughts micro-bursts.

Coloring Outside the Lines

Falling in to yesterday

Eternal quest

Butterfly or moth

Searching for flower or flame

Slipstreams into fact

Tumbling letters break words

Nothing held or possessed

Like shadows in the dark

Another commentary po.em with words from Lorraine, and, and myself. Her words are in italics. Please stop by a visit her!

Missed Chance -Commentary Po.em

Mark has composed a commentary po.em, coupled with the image, that evokes emotions and pulls out feelings.

Coloring Outside the Lines

In the peripheral vision of your eye

Waving from my attention

Arms out stretched

Fingers feeling in the air

Like shadows in the dark

Lingering memories pull away

Rushing up and over

Only to crawl and slither

Another commentary po.em collaboration between Lorraine,, and myself. Her words are in italics. pleas stop by her site and her smaller works at

Mindfulness Monday – Love

Very important words — 365, and remember tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Be mindful of love.

Picnic with Ants


What is the difference between “I like you”
and “I love you”?

Beautifully answered by Buddha:
“When you like a flower, you just pluck it.
But when you love a flower, you water it daily.”

“The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention.
When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they will bloom like flowers.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh

Singularity – Commentary Po.em

Another commentary po.em created by Mark from our comment collaborations. Mark has skillfully pulled lines from several different streams to create this very effective po.em

Coloring Outside the Lines

Moving toward the event horizon

Singularity engulfs everything

Time is an illusion

in a silver of moment ecstasy

Sleight of hands, smoke and mirrors

Vision tricks sense of touch

Hearing our emotions

fearing our senses

Blessed by torment

ephemera passing as nostalgia

Talisman of misfortune

Desperately trying to match breaths

lost in the cacophony of heartbeat

Another commentary po.em collaborated with the lovely Lorraine, Her words are italics. These lines were compiled in comment sections along the way.
