chasing squirrels

Squirrel in Tree Pic

that’s me

always chasing squirrels

checking emails and facebook messages

dozens of times a day

safely tucking away

those i want to read

someday

always buying new books

while hundreds

already in my possession

await my attention

build your platform

your network

a good idea

if you write

paint

take pictures

but with so many

friends, connections, and followers

how can i develop

authentic friendships and lasting connections

how can i become

someone truly worth following

pursuing eclectic interests

that’s good

chasing squirrels

leaving behind a trail of incomplete projects

not so much

today i sought the skywriting

the unmistakeable inspiration

for my words

instead

i shared

my darting thought

What squirrels have you chased recently?
