sit up straight

while driving
distraction pulled me
to the right

each moment
provides a chance to
be conscious

so are you
paying attention
to the now?

A good reminder of how we fade in and out of awareness. Sometimes it's even better, and safer to be on autopilot as the conscious mind wants to control things. I'm rambling. Back to the now...

being able to distinguish between the quality of awareness of now and the quality of snooze is something I'm working on at the mo'. thanks for stopping by, bry:-)

Janet, can you share exactly what haiku is? Is it a certain number of stanzas and lines? I could google it, but thought to ask you directly.... Love, somewhere between the moment of Now and a snooze

Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry which traditionally consists of 17 syllables on 3 lines: 5-7-5. many English language practitioners use the 3-5-3 pattern due to the differences in language. i.e. 17 syllables can say much more in English than it can in Japanese. I go back and forth between the two, but strive for the smaller numbers if I can.
