FITNESS FOR POETS is
my free weekly poem of love & support for your Art.

Hear that call to your calling?

metta for / metaphor

The world is 
waiting to hear from you,
but first!
repeat these words softly
to your Art
with all your heart–

May you be safe.
May you exalt in good health.
May you take this chance.
Know you are loved.

And now,

imagine your Inspired Self,
the one who looks up
in shock
at the clock, at the time
gone by 
getting it done,
speak this love–

May you feel this happy
delight in your Art!
Capsule this moment
for next time; in an emergency
crack it open.

And now,

imagine your Self 
stuck in one spot, unable to move. 
Indecisive, uninspired? 
Stay right where you are to 
direct this love,
all the more precisely–

You are safe in your spot.
No judge! 
From this particularly
unique perspective in which 
you find yourself,

watch and take note.
There is no rush!

And now,

imagine every other Artist in 
the world today, your 
compatriots in hot pursuit 
of what we do,
and wrap us round with 
this thought–

May you make Art!
May you spread yourself thick 
through the day; 
no matter 
what you choose to do,
no matter 
how obscure,

it is an integral part!
