Try Different Bait

Got some bark for a bobber.
Some corn on the hook.
Thought I’d try something different
Hope fish give it a look.

Fished here for years,
So I’m changing the bait;
A less active approach;
The ‘ol, Sit and wait.

But, along came a turtle.
I had Coy in mind.
So i reeled in the line,
Cuz I am kind.

As Far as You Know

In and out of my head.
In and out of the past.
In and out of the moment.
Member of your cast.

If you want the best of me,
You’ve got to let me be.
You don’t know what you want,
But I can help you see.

But focus is on you.
You must adjust your sight.
It’s just a thing that happens,
For those who’re living right.

It comes with letting go,
Of control; that which you hold.
You’re wired but you don’t know it.
You do how you were told.

Taught to see a certain way,
But there’s much more to see.
Awareness has the answers.
Observation is the key.

Just noticing what is.
And, being thankful you are here.
Imagine you’re a captain.
You’ve a boat that you must steer.

And, the weather’s changing constantly.
Some days there will be storms.
Calm waters will not last.
Roses have their thorns.

He said that we are “Stiff Necked”,
Which is to say, we stare.
What is it that you’re minding?
Move on, That is my dare.

Move on.
