Being In a Body Is…


Being In a Body Is…

Being in a body is

Sometimes like being at home

At others

It bewilders and perplexes

With things that feel more

More like foreign.

Yes, foreign territory

Or new lands, caverns and wells

That well,

Take some exploring

And groping around

To hear the sound

To feel the sensation.

It can induce consternation

To not recognise

Such feelings inside

Our eyes open wide

In wonder.

Our minds they can race

At a break-neck pace

Yet the body feel limp, heavy and

Just wants to sink

Into peaceful slumber.

Being in a body is

A still revealing land

That I’m yet to understand

The language of limbs

Of pressure and pains

And weariness remains.


For some peace.

Be still and


Be still

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
