Floating downriver

The chance of humming – Rumi

A man standing on two logs in a river.
might do alright floating with the current.
while humming in the now

Though
if one log is tied to a camel.
who is heading south along the river at the same pace.
all could still be well with the world.

unless the camel thinks he forgot something and.
abruptly turns upstream,
then

uh-oh

Most minds
do not live in the present and stick to a reasonable plan;
most minds abruptly turn
and undermine the.
chance
of
humming
