Beautiful Emptiness



Felt like indulging in gossip
Just about to ring up a friend,
I halted….

A moment of awareness

Looked at
That emptiness, I was
Seeking to fill with useless gossip

Closer look revealed....
She is so beautiful,
this emptiness!

I looked at her closely
Dwelled in her for some time
And
She filled me!

There was no need to gossip!
No need to raid fridge!
No surfing TV aimlessly!

Enthusiasm for my new project took over!

A wonderful moment, is it not, when we put our own pettiness aside, move on?

Love this thought! If we could all catch ourselves in that moment we would be much better off! Sounds like a much better way to fill your time!

I like this so much. So nice to replace emptiness with meaning.
