Contemplating Nothing

Written by: Russell Sivey

She lies Motionless As if she’s dead Absorbing the sunlight from the sky Thinking of nothing Contemplating Nothing Just laying On the padded grass Taking in the sunlight Engrossed in the act of doing nothing And not thinking about it Just lying there, bored Doing nothing Not a thing To think on Just emptiness in the mind Lack of thought Letting the sunlight Bring in the warmth necessary To breathe life Into nothing Not desiring To think on nothing Just lying there Without a worry in the world No thoughts at all Just laying Nothing Doing and being nothing Is my objective Today… Nothing
