photo-1432691301971-c8b920198bd7Busylessness can be described as living more mindfully, engaging in being “not busy,” and enjoying a life of greater peace and calm.

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. – Thich Nhat Hanh

white clouds of dust

clouds_over_the_sea-1680x1050a walk to the ocean
I look to the waves
then gaze above
streaks of opal clouds
I find

pillows of chalk dust
a board and eraser of such
wiping clear and anew
the ocean meditation
eases my mind

the worries, the thoughts
now white clouds of dust
gone away
the peace overcomes
all unkind, behind
