Today feels heavy
Change is thick in the air
Every mirror seems smudged
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
Future, a blur
