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.

To Be Led (A Leader’s Presence)

In time of virulent insecurity, a swarm devours thought;
the hum drowns out voice.
Deaf to the distraction, you focus where you ought,
guiding me to a new choice.

Trusting what is best for one is best for all,
from failure you refuse to protect.
Your courage fortifies accountability to stand tall;
I now succeed in what I select.

Energized by learning, and driven by a need to share,
you helped me clearly see what is good indeed.
Now I offer in the whole this extension of care,
and lead others to listen inside for what they need.

−J. Brunson
