Shift – (Six Sentence Story #169)

We’re going for the shift

A change in our thoughts,

To stop future worry: what has been and what’s gone.

We need to act upon,

A movement in state.


We may need a sharp jolt

A slap in the face,

To ensure we notice where we are right now.

Neither tense needs no bow,

Today’s all that’s real.


Thoughts last just a moment

Be they fear or joy,

Let us seek peace in between each reflection.

Discard disaffection,

And sigh with relief.

(Double Ennead)
