I fill my work calendar with big stones. I organize my activities and set my career goals for 2023. Family's birthdays and other milestones are colored in spring green. Also my timetable for vacations & personal days from work are marked in bright pink. That block of time is precious, like a gift to be carefully unwrapped, slowly after each tear.
However for my personal life's goal, the calendar is open. I welcome the blankness of the canvas because it means new things and challenges for me. Though I am keen on regularly walking, hiking and reading in my down time, I invite time to ghost me, while I ponder on my verses & mystery of the night sky.
mud-stained sky is glum
melting ice by craggy shore-
birds glide, swelling tide
