Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,

WAKING UP

WAKING UP

Warmup exercises:
coffee, spiritual practices,
writing to Reality

Then work’s task list

It’s like being a climber, actually

I wake, groggy
I start my procedure

I have these little chisels
putting one hand
of my mind
up my mind
then the other

Something busting
outta fuzz

Passing into various lucidities
like sighting minnows swimming in my
peripheral awareness

I ease myself into a clearness,
a cradle I’ve built for myself

It’s like a tent
hanging off
the side of a mountain
or a harness

Just tying my shoes,
just getting up into the ropes
helps me ease into the anchors
laid on the mountain

Footholds from established practice,
muscles built from faith in
previously laid sling

~ Lady
