How To Do Just About Anything

I’ve figured out
how to focus on
one thing at a time effortlessly

and also how to go weeks
without the need of food or sleep.

So, too, I’ve discovered
how to feel the winter
on a humid summer day

and even how to turn an hour
into one hundred thousand years.

It’s actually very simple—
very much free, as well:
just miss someone you love.

    Sometimes all you can do is miss your special someone when they’re miles and miles away, and that feeling (without any doubt) is beyond peaceful and precious.

    Mesmerising words! ❤️

    • That’s right. Sometimes all you can do is miss someone from afar. And it can hurt a lot but it’s also nice to miss the right person. There are people who come into our lives that we would miss missing, and the thought of them brings us a sort of peace as you said. Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comment. Much love and joy to you!

    You capture feelings in a way that connects deeply with your readers. You strike me as a very deep and caring person. Wishing you every happiness as you continue to connect with your inner source power and shine your loving light around the world.

    • Thanks for you sweet comment. I hope words treat me better this year. And I hope your words/muse do the same to you; however, I’m sure you’ll have no problem producing wonders. Stay safe!

      • Lia says:

        That is so kind, thank you… :)) I hope to do better with my words this year. I think we have to learn to choose our muse(s) and choose them wisely, ideally. Thanks again, and stay well and free!

    Thats so true ! Its those moments when your tired/busy or away somewhere and you think of him/her and all of a sudden you get that extra step or time moves faster because you remember that endless feeling of love that at times feels unconquerable.

    • You’re right. It can happen like that. Love seems to be able to do the impossible at times, to actually almost conquer everything in a sense. “Unconquerable” is a good word. Perhaps it’s more about how love can’t be defeated than it defeating things. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
