Stepping Out

Stepping Out

inside the mask
a faint whiff of grease
from this morning’s eggs

I find the outdoors
secure in its greatness
the sea still open
the sky limitless
the sky, the limit.

The challenge from Grace over at dverse is this:

The challenge for today is to write zen poetry, with a focus on attaining moments of enlightment – or true clarity of mind — by emphasizing singular experiences.

(This is an edit of a previous poem.)

    Really enjoyed the sparse Zen essence in your writing here. Well done my friend. Have a great holiday and a happy new year, I will see you again then.
