Listen to this poem in mayryanna Shakti’s own voice on her companion Podcast Humblebee

no alarm

but sounds

of breath

muffled in

covers


nothing to

designate a

beginning of

or scheduled

todos


turning over

falling back

to sleep

to toss

more


habit glances

at clock

before empty –

letting go

again


***


a naked

leg drapes

the side

of my

bed


I decided 

to stay

in underwear

instead of

caring


I lay

in comfort

unbothered for

hours still

unmoved


I fiddle

with imagination 

and let 

myself read

news


***


nowhere to

be but

right here

right now

alone


tired not

from waking

rather tired

from living

confused


I won’t

do anything

at all

unless I

can


and what

can I

do but

wait and

be


***


A virus

spreads through

countries fast

and frightens 

us


suddenly normal

doesn’t exist

anymore but

people are

trying


I am

blessed to

be safe

warm and

fed


My awareness 

though for 

those less

fortunate ever

growing


***


whatever true

will remain

in spite

of all

lost


so folding

in on

endless collapsing 

I dissapear 

completely 


there is

still body

and awareness

and curiosity

here


no ideas

only pictures

of things

that make

feeling


***


every picture 

every feeling

all here

until let 

go


one by

one by

one I

look and 

see


one after

one after

one I

finally release

me


becoming empty

removing everything 

examining all

to say

goodbye


***


I am

living more

now here

more than

ever


taking in

expressions of

endless life

expanding beyond 

limits


it is

this space

this emptiness 

that gives

havingness


for where

can anything 

be without

the space 

to


***


so writing

so singing

so dancing

in the

sun


not for

fulness of

self but

by pure

abandon 


winning not

but losing

all attachments

that create

pain


letting willingness 

guide deeper

into heart

of potent

Truth
