New Habit

New Habit

As you embark
On the journey
Of new habit
May the road
Of intentions
Prove smooth and joyous
May the unfamiliar pattern
become extraordinarily
ordinary with ease and grace

Near the Line

a while back
with tilted eyes and monikers
whilst tippy toes clod-hopped
she discovered 
quite unobtrusively
that quietly
with no pomp 
the circumstance of near arrival
of a large marking of time
spent judiciously 
on a daily basis
was fast approaching
the fear of success
or the idea of achievement 
hobbled her
almost instantaneously
so much so
that all regular habits
died on the spot
* * *
the roots live
deep and strong
whether near some invisible line
or not
and new sprouts and shoots
are bound to grow
After this post we have 10 more posts to reach 1,000. And each of those days a single effort is all it will take to re-kindle the habit of the Daily Napkin.


Establish a habit – 30 days
Re-establish a habit – 30 days
(No wonder most months have 30 days)
and again
and over again
with the tenacity of bulldog
Stuck in beginner’s mind
intending habit

Habit of Harmony

So many times
the song leader stopped them
Tweaking the sound
correcting the phrase
Until the habit of harmony
came upon them
And they forgot
to be self-conscious
