Are You Watching? @DrArlettePoland

I was watching the wind and trees play the other day

How they bend each other

How they touch and love

Argue and push

Prod and collaborate


I was watching the birds and wind play the other day

How they collaborate

How they flow together

How they argue and push

How they touch and love


I was watching the sun play with the shadows the other day

How they never stay in one place

How they flow together with the wind

How they collaborate and bend

Trees, birds, wind, shadows - sun

Me, watching


The trees were watching me the other day

How I sat so still even in the wind

How I smiled and blinked

How I breathed and scratched

How I loved and how I argued


Where you place your attention

Is where your kindness

Bends, argues, touches and flows

Loves and collaborates


Have you watched the trees and wind play?

Have you watched the wind and birds love?

Have you argued with shadows or the sun?


Where you place your attention,

Your focus … your attention

That is your power

Have you watched where?
