Adjusting The Telescope

iíve been saying no more often,
taking activities off my calendar,
clearing away clutter,
making space.

now, sometimes
when i am alone,
without an agenda, i feel sad
thatís okay.

sadness is that
glorious contrast
existing
in my experience.

without contrast,
how would i recognize
beauty, peace,
joy?

when sadness comes,
i embrace it,
acknowledge it.
sometimes tears flow.

i allow
familiar
melancholic waves
to wash over me.

i make space for sadness,
because experiencing
is better
than feeling nothing.
