dVerse Poets – Quadrille – Work

“The mind’s first step to self-awareness must be through the body.” George A. Sheehan

The Real Work

Living ever forwards,
as if there was no past,
no questions to ask of ourselves,
never seeing how we are and
how we affect others is a 
profound dis-ease,
but to sit and observe and
notice what arises,
surely, this is the real work.
