From the One spring many— distraction cements duality.
Enchantment flips a penny— people resent duality.
Tend each now . . . breathe in . . . breathe out.
Let moments rise and weave in— ferment duality.
Remove preoccupation, be the task at hand.
Tangential rumination represents duality.
When pulling weeds, pull weeds, when doing deeds
do deeds. Focus, lest diversion reinvent duality.
The author washes dishes. Laughter becomes bubbles,
setting free her wishes. She circumvents duality.
Shout out to the Monday Poetry Train, for allowing Monday posts of any kind, and to Robert Lee Brewer of Poetic Asides for leading me to the ghazal. The ghazal is a poetic form with roots in 7th century Arabia. Every couplet should stand alone, although they follow a certain rhyme and refrain pattern. The last stanza should reference the poet.
