Haiku

I found this Haiku somewhere and it touched me:

Sitting quietly
Doing nothing
Spring comes
And the grass grows by itself

When I am too uptight to write I take 3 deep (belly breathing) breaths and repeat the verse. Try this. The words are in you and you have to let go and quiet the mind to let them flow through you and on to the page.

This reminds me, as a friend says, "I am not the general manager of the universe." The world can manage without me. I am allowed to sit quietly and do nothing.
