When I am out running, I often feel like I fall into some sort of hypnotic or meditative state, it’s hard to explain and put into words but whilst out running today I was thinking about it. Sometimes my runs are easy, free-flowing, effortless and natural (like yesterday) and sometimes my runs feel really tough (like today). Whilst out running this morning I was thinking about, what makes the difference in me? I know that when my mind is busy, like today, my runs are tougher and when my mind is silent, it feels like, as the runner, I become the run. This then got me thinking about other things that would also apply to, i.e. the lover becomes the love, the singer becomes the song etc.. etc.. Which inspired this next poem. Whatever you do today, may it feel natural, loving and in spirit. Love Clarabelle
The runner becomes the run;
The laughter becomes the fun.
The walker becomes the walk;
The talker becomes the talk.
This is what I know;
This is natural flow.
The lover becomes the love;
The rain flows from the cloud above.
The singer becomes the song;
Solitude is where I belong.
This is what I feel;
This for me is real.
The artist becomes the art;
True spirit flows from your heart.
The swimmer becomes the sea;
Creative flow comes from feeling free.
This for me is true;
I believe for me and you.
This poem is part of the poet;
A gift and how I know it.

Thank you for liking my post 🙂 I like this quote – “Don’t let other people’s negative opinion of you become your reality.” Wishing you a wonderful day full of creative abundance. Clarabelle
Hey, it didn’t mean a negative opinion on u 😦
Sorry, if i conveyed wrong.
Hi, yes, I know that, thank you. 🙂
And when the experiencer becomes the experience. I used to consider running as my time to meditate as well (nowadays, its walking). I have had many amazing epiphanies 🙂
Yes Fred, I absolutely agree, thanks for sharing that. I love walking too, especially in the rain. 🙂
My pleasure Clarabelle! Have an awesome day 🙂
Thank you Fred, you too 🙂
