How to Elude Ennui

Savoring the moment

Avoiding time-wasting activities
is about as likely as escaping gravity

We find ourselves being where we don’t want to be
stuck in traffic, waiting in line, wanting the meeting to end

Yet gridlocked time can be a small gift
Precious moments for coming alive

Time we are given to taste the present
like savoring rich chocolate as it melts on the tongue

Maybe instead of trying to save time
we can bask in the moment and be time itself


Check out the poem, Space-between Space, for another take on this topic.
