The Great Indoors ;-)
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
We have all heard
Of the "Great Outdoors"
And of all there is to explore.
No matter how much
You experience out there
Each time, you learn something more.
So I wondered one day
Of the balancing realm
Inside of myself, and in you,
For wherever you are
It is always right there,
The "Indoors" are pretty "Great" too.
Not the house you live in
Or apartment for rent
Where friends come to visit and chat,
But the place deep within
Like your soul or your heart,
Or your spirit, or something like that.
It's my internal home
That needs dusting sometimes
I try hard to keep it all clean;
Though you'll never see me
Smiling on the front cover
Of Great Housekeeping magazine.
There is Spiritual Food
In our Great Indoors!
In this way, each of us is a winner;
I'll share mine with you
But I'm not the best cook
Just know where there's smoke, there's dinner.
On my internal path
That leads back to myself,
Many forks in the road are criss-crossed,
Thoughts cascade into more
Here within my quaint soul
And more often than not, I get lost...
So friends walk beside me
Through my Great Indoors,
The valleys climb to the Mont Blanc;
Should they poke their big nose
Where it doesn't belong,
I'll poke back just to hear it honk.
But it's mostly just me
Who traverses within
To experience the joy of daydreaming;
And mostly it's good
But don't get me wrong
For sometimes I wake myself screaming!
Yes, I always find time
For the "Great Indoors"
Learning things never known before;
And if you are like me
When you travel this path
Each time, you learn something more.
