Pausing in limbo

between the past and future

feeling exhausted

                                                How to find the new

                                         when it all seems like re-runs

                                               of stuff done before?

Sick of pretending

that the old patterns still fit

when they really don’t


                                                       Resolute courage

                                                   and absolute gratitude

                                                      are the foundation

                                                   along with meditation

                                                 and releasing old dramas


                                                     a  strange malaise,

                                                       spiritual apathy

                                                   teaching detachment

  1. Detachment works when situation is calm and peaceful but the moment a bad news arrives from near and dear ones the attachment takes over. Peace shatters at least for me.

    1. You’re welcome though I did feel a bit guilty about putting up such a down post. It was a case of needing to express something to move through it. I realised a profound truth on the way through and will write a soc No.2 to explain it. πŸ™‚

        1. I wrote the follow up and linked it to your site. Thanks so much for the opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings through writing.

  2. That second stanza really resonates. I found old lists of NY resolutions the other year, and they were all pretty much the same, a graveyard of things never achieved and a monument to perpetual hope. The last stanza is a very profound insight and the photo is a perfect background to the resolving haiku.

    1. This is another of those posts I am needing to write at present so that I can move through some of the strange experiences I am having at present. Writing it helped me move forward and there will be a follow up very soon. Thanks for reading.

    1. Thank you so much. It is a rather weird post that grew out of a strange mood that had been holding me in thrall. Writing the post helped shift things and I will be writing a follow up post very soon.

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
