Nonchalant

 

Sitting in a local cafe remind myself that part of my deepening in 2019 is to write more. Yet often the words come faster than the ink can flow, so I capture the words in part on my phone. Often they are sleepy as the inpiration unearths itself around midnight and I can’t sleep until they escape my mind. This was one such verse.

nonchalant,

its one of those words I always have to look up in the dictionary

just to check that I know what it means

not that I’m that bothered by it

but I like to have words in the right place

I guess you could trace it back to my father or rather

his heart

to impart a lexicon that was more than the ordinary

exploring

what was being said

that none would be misread or misheard

nor deterred from the true heart of

what one was wanting to say

so today

nonchalant matters
