Illness and trauma
after each illness and trauma:
These shape experience.
These shape awareness of what is
and how to alter it.
Each obstacle,
each frustration,
each divide,
each impact upon subjective life
impacts, always, with awareness.
Sometimes, we don’t see it at all,
stuck in the stickiness of the moment.
Sometimes, I see it when the impact
is less impacting.
As it settles below me,
like disturbed mud in creeks,
I become clear
with all my pebbles.
