You can no more disconnect from the universe and its inhabitants than a wave can extricate itself from the ocean. ~Dan Harris danbharris

Acceptance is not passivity. Sometimes we are justifiably displeased. What mindfulness does is create some space in your head so you can, as the Buddhists say, “respond” rather than simply “react.” In the Buddhist view, you can’t control what comes up in your head; it all arises out of a mysterious void. We spend a lot of time judging ourselves harshly for feelings that we had no role in summoning. The only thing you can control is how you handle it. — Dan Harris - 10% Happier: How I Tamed The Voice In My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, And Found Self-Help That Actually Works - A True Story.

An Aspiring Sock

He was
An aspiring sock
Hoping, one day
With a little luck, or some friends
In high places
To be a leotard, or maybe
Dare he dream
So big
A pair of flannel pajamas
With pink and blue elephants and
White buttons

But for now
He was just
An aspiring sock
With big dreams and a hole
In his heart

Melancholy & Mirth

Written / Read by Azuki Lynn

My first spoken word post…

The mirror never lies,
there are lines written on my face.
Crows have danced at the
corners of my eyes,
left their scratchy traces.
But these lines are my lines,
I don’t mind laying claim.
And these crows?
They are my crows;
I’m the one who raised them,
and gave them fancy names:
Melancholy & Mirth
they learned their moves from me.
Lines be damned, it is still my face,
and for what it’s worth
that’s no disgrace,
so I let those birdies be.

Azuki Lynn

Love this.

my short temper

that is so short

it sometimes can’t reach

a kind word

lives right beside

my skyscraper heart

that paints all its windows

to save all the little birds
