#30x30Poetry: Day 13 – Forgetfulness

Over at 30×30 Poetry, today is all about forgetfulness. So much so, I almost forgot to respond to the prompt.

Of Things Remembered

By: Meena Rose

Try as I might to live
Life by Covey’s four quadrants
Or Allen’s GTD, things tumble
And fall and collect right
There between my wall and the bed.

Try as I might to lead
A more mindful life, present
And in the moment, my mind travels
Away from the moment chasing after
A butterfly – did I just miss something?

Try as I might to reflect
And grow deeper and chart
My soul path, my journals
Are incomplete and the data points
Are skewed – how could I forget life is good?

  1. Meena, sorry it’s been so long. I’ve not been very “present” between Nina (and of course Riley, who’s channeling it all into her work), and Holy Week as a music minister.

    So this poem really touched me. It spoke to exactly where I am at this moment, talk about synchronicity, I must have channeled my need to you…! Even everyday like, the GTD (which I never do because WAIT I HAVE TO WRITE…) and the organization and mindfulness… If any sage looked inside my mind, I would look like my desk. Thanks and peace, friend. Amy
