in everything I do

When I’m spinning,
the records swirling,
the beats flowing,
my heart, on my sleeve, is showing.

When I’m writing,
the characters developing,
the words dropping,
my soul, there for all to see, I am baring.

When I’m reading,
the characters to life are springing,
the world within I am seeing,
my thoughts, committed and caring, I am not sparing.

When I’m playing,
my muscles and joints aching,
my senses firing and nerves tingling,
my body, thrown about, I am sacrificing.

In everything I am doing,
from sunrise to when it is setting,
some piece of myself I am always giving,
planning, caring, gaming, loving.

Meraki, now that’s the key.

Meraki [may-rah-kee]  This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.

    • We like to mix it up here, dabble in a little bit of everything if you will, poetry, fiction, silliness, and even the truth from time to time. Now, may or may not be one of those times. 😉

      • Ahhh, keep me guessing huh! I like the poem a lot. It’s good to change things up! But what is this truth you speak of? I must google this strange sounding word. Ha!

      • Ha ha! It said something about being the opposite of fiction… I believe it’s called non-fiction? To live in this place called “reality”??? All sounds a little boring.

      • OK, I will order dragons for you. And for me? I choose flight. Even though I am scared of heights in reality, I have always wanted to fly! So proud of this one little three year old at school that had a crack at it… even though he broke his arm! Go hard or go home I say.

      • In this world, you never know unles you try… just because it has never worked before doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. I appluad the spirit!

  1. I like your flow, its the only way to go! When you words are droppin’ , your heart is talkin’. I like to rhyme too about me and my boo. I really like your post! Its better than most! Thanks for making me rap, now I really need a nap!

    • Completely agree. If you aren’t doing something with a bit of a soul, with putting a bit of yourself into, then why are you doing it at all… Thanks for the prompt! Had a lot of fun writing this one.
