An afternoon ramble

An afternoon ramble

Green tea and a book,
on a quiet afternoon,
now that I am older
I often find myself sleeping.

I seek to pray and my mind wanders,
writing helps me to focus and be present,
allowing inner thoughts to emerge
that I did not know were there.

Are my musings true I often ask myself,
who is it that writes,
as if the words pour out of me
apart from my own cognition.

I don't know,
like helping others,
why do I do that?

Ya know,
not sure I care,
I will do it anyway.

Perhaps we are all
the second greatest mystery,
God and his love and mercy
being the greatest,
an eternal journey into the embrace.
