Today is Heavy

Today feels heavy

Change is thick in the air

Every mirror seems smudged

Distorted, unclear

Like trying to see, to breathe, to move

through a dust storm.


Trapped in the cyclone of upheaval and uncertainty?

Protected by the impenetrable cocoon of creation?

Perception or reality?

Survivable or calamity?


Today I stand in silence, listening

Absorbing the impact of all that is new

Seeing that the new is merely

old made new again

 

Witnessing the ripple effect of each action and word

Determining threat from raucous and absurd

 

Quicksand flying

Feet unsure

Mind assaulted

Future, a blur
