week 506 ~ sit quietly for a moment

with 2 comments

sit quietly for a moment
until your sense of place returns
you belong here all your concerns
will resolve the road simply bent
unexpectedly you were sent
in a new direction unplanned
malfunctioning but as you land
here look around don’t try to rise
just wait until you see blue skies
and feel the sun then choose to stand

whatever’s wrong
missed vision blurred
moving forward
life undeterred
still sings its song
moving forward
whatever’s wrong

I was thinking about “unexpected” on my walk this morning, how the word in my youth used to bring such delight– unexpected discoveries, rewards, victories, happiness. But these days unexpected seems to come more in the form of a body-block to the soul– loss, heartbreak, pain. And then later, these thoughts still milling about in my brain, I received news of the unexpected death of a mandolinist and friend, gone far too young. John McGann was brilliant, dedicated, quirky, and always so much more interesting than the average virtuoso. I can hardly fathom he’s not still here with us. I’ve been listening to him play all afternoon, and here’s one to share with you. RIP, my friend.
