Do you ever feel like you’re trying too hard?

Pushing your pen toward

some predetermined destination

at which you never arrive?

Are you driving your dreams.

and desires into the ground?

What if, just for today,

 you lay down your ego and

Asked for guidance?

Not from a coach

or a guru

or someone who claims 

to have a roadmap,

but from within.

What if you returned to the basics,

the way pen feels on paper,

the pleasure of your hand moving across the page,

the mind loosening as you go.

Remember the way it felt in the beginning,

when writing was new and

you delighted in discovery

without all that pushing?

In the rush of spring,

in the rush of hope

post-vaccination,

it’s okay to take it slow,

to go at your own pace,

to stop pushing.

Relax your mind,

open your heart,

And see what blooms.
