Not So Simple

So many questions cluttering my mind –
numbers and guidelines: Stay Inside!

I crave the single mindedness of a plant
whose nature tends towards sunlight

and contemplate the stillness of moss
wondering if it too feels the inquietude

And gaze on with envy as a solo flight passes
yearning to taste the freedom of escape.

Life has become so complicated, suddenly
Simplicity, we’re discovering, not so easy.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
