Monday Morning Mary: Life Is Not a Program

Encapsulating Ice
Programming 102

Life is not a program,
an algorithm
       to design and master.
IF/THEN is a construct of logic
       that keeps you locked.
OPEN the eyes of your heart
       to the beauty of elemental formations,
       the shapes of water and conversation.
Do not wait for conditions to be right.
SNAP the photo of the encapsulating ice
WHEN you see it.
       Or better yet,
STAND still for FIVE seconds,
and say,
       WOW.

  1. Lovely. This one is even more beautiful when read from bottom to top. Thanks for sharing from your heart. I find your meditations quite touching. My name is Sandie. I work with your son who introduced me to your blog. Blessings to you.

    • Thank you, Sandie. I never thought of reading a poem bottom to top! I went back and and tried it, how interesting the possibilities. Thank you for reading my work, and for taking the time to comment. Blessings to you, too.

  2. Loved “The Subtlety of Protection” and “Life is not a Program”.

    Peace and healthy to you.

    Love Marianne
