Focus – A Pouring

I pour a cup
drink.
I pour for another
they drink.

To pour energy into anything
is to share the very self
in some form
with another.

As I pour self
am I used up?
Yes.
And no.

Depleted yes
what the cup held
yet at the source
more is brewing.

To source remaining connected
fully used up I cannot be
never really empty
again I’m filled.

It’s time to pour
once more.

—J. Brunson

  2. If forced to choose, and I’m glad I don’t have to, this would be my favorite poem to date! To me, coming from the place I do, it has a Buddhist feel that is quite appealing and a message that resonates with my being 🙂
