The Present Moment Didn’t Get Here When I Waited For It

I’m waiting for aspirin to dull the morning ache in my neck.

I’m waiting for my yoga teacher to let me into Zoom class.

I’m waiting for caffeine to turn my grogginess to zoom-zoom-zoom.

I’m waiting for my mind to get quiet. Time to meditate.
