Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences


with 2 comments


I got distracted from my reality
for a second last night
but it lasted for more than just one second
and had everything to do
with life in the whole world
happening all the time
wasted on the thankless
tragic beyond belief
a cold draft on the outside of my bare arm
an unexpected metaphoric slap in the face
defying all logic
at the time in that space
in this place
where it is gorgeous
wild in multiple ways
natural world happenings
in vivid contrast
to unnatural accomplishments
of humankind

  1. Well said, John, and so appropriate today. I just saw a photo of babies in a Kyiv hospital, moved to the basement to try to keep them safe from bombing.
