This poem came out of the May 15, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Shirley Barrette. It also fills the "habits / routines" square in my 4-7-18 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo fest.


"Habits of Manifestation"


Sitting in a chair,
reading a book
on a quiet evening;

looking out at the deck,
where the songbirds are
eating from the feeders;

coming to the table,
set with homemade food
and eating from the feast --

these simple pleasures are
also habits of manifestation.

They take what is good in life
and cause it to exist.

If more people valued
reading and birdwatching
and eating than consuming
entertainment full of violence,

the world would be a better place.

I hadn't thought of it that way.

Well said.

I like how this reminded me of Thorin Oakenshield's last words to Bilbo Baggins in Tolkien's "The Hobbit".

To be a happy Shireling! (Down your drink)
