Start Close In

Mindfulness’ ı çağrıştıran çok güzel bir şiir bu. Bilhassa bir şeylere başlama evresinde olanlara iyi geleceğini düşünüyorum. (Neye başlayacağınızı siz biliyorsunuz:)

Bugün, şimdi, şu anda atman gereken adım her ne ise onu atıyor musun? O zaman gidiyorsun.

Son derste @berivanaslansungur hocanın dediğini anımsıyorum: “Siste yürür gibi yürüyeceksin.”

En uzağı göremiyoruz,

neyse ki bir adım ötesini görmek kafi,

bugün bir adım atmak kafi.

Yürüyor muyuz, yürüyoruz. ❤️

Start close in,
don’t take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step
you don’t want to take.

Start with
the ground
you know,
the pale ground
beneath your feet,
your own
way of starting
the conversation.

Start with your own
question,
give up on other
people’s questions,
don’t let them
smother something
simple.

To find
another’s voice,
follow
your own voice,
wait until
that voice
becomes a
private ear
listening
to another.

Start right now
take a small step
you can call your own
don’t follow
someone else’s
heroics, be humble
and focused,
start close in,
don’t mistake
that other
for your own.

Start close in,
don’t take
the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step
you don’t want to take.
