The Joy Of The Mellow

I pass no judgement,
(and yet, of course, I do)
details are never important,
though to be curious is never
to be shamed, rather, celebrated,
as points of departure from the
sameness of repetitions,
as for grief, while aware, I'm
incuriously embracing the mellow.

  7. Oh I agree… to be mellow and content is often even more important then curiousity

    Looooove “incuriously!” And embracing the mellow sounds like perfection to me. I have always said I try to cultivate contentment. This sounds like it might be in the same vein. But perhaps include a mellow drinky of some kind. 😉

  12. I like that you found another way into this prompt, via ‘incurious.’ I wouldn’t be curious to try grief but I’ve tasted enough of it!
