November 27, 2015 Writers Digest November PAD Challenge/ Left Overs

Left Overs

what is left after the event     i come to the studio each day      i am at work

this is the process                  and there is no hurrying it            day after day

one day becomes another      often they appear the same           hard to tell one from another

like grains of sand                  in the hour glass                           one by one

the daily work is the minutia  the detail that becomes                what you see

the left over                             hung on the wall                          this is the process

the daily attention                   a meditative act                            stay focused

remember the task                   like the postman                          it does not matter

rain or snow                             sunshine or shadow                    each part has to be created

and what is left over                we call                                         art

I can feel the meditative aspect of the work.....and the passing of those quiet days. There is beauty in such devotion and dedication, and a deep peacefulness, I imagine. How lovely. I need a whole winter of days like that!
