Being close

Being close is not

so good if it means

not seeing

the greater view.

 

Caught up in minutiae,

one is encased in the detail of

living,

a slave to the

insistent particulars

of things

that are not your own.

 

And then,

when you move,

re-position,

shift back and away

and see,

maybe for the first time,

you appreciate

its smallness;

and you are no

longer caught in this

web of expectations.

 

You are alive,

and you see

that what matters

is the greater view.
