Stop & Go: SWF’12:03

Idling here for a moment’s pause
I close my eyes to consider
“where am I going these days?”
An all too common question, yes.
And yet, I’ve still not concluded
on exactly what my destination is.
I’ve flubbubed quite a bit lately;
floundered with what should’ve run smooth.
The moment stretches as I contemplate.
Seconds tic away relentlessly without fail.
And yet… I need this reflection.
A chance to think, to evaluate.
But, perhaps, not particularly here…honk!

  1. So creative, as always! I was in the car with you at the beginning, then got lost in thought with you….then “felt” honked at – was brought back to oh, yeah, she’s sitting in the car! Funny (not haha funny) how hard it can be to take time to stop and reflect.

  2. I need more idling for reflection, too–but I also tend to do it at inopportune moments! I ought to give my kids little horns to honk to get me moving again. 😉

  3. I do a lot of pondering in the car…it’s one of the few times I’m alone!!

  4. Honk–LOL Loved this, and can identify with all that you wrote.
