Rituals We Build
We build a ritual of evening tea, or easier, evening drink;
Rituals of candles, or worse, smoke.
Nightly rites of meditation, of running, or more accurately: of eating, of sitting.
Breaking a pattern of consumption for a practice of reflection, production.
Importantly: My Rituals are My Own.
Halting a custom of 9 to 5 misery and 5 till 9 dread
And building a new habit of morning gratitude and a nighttime celebration of joy.
Once I knew a ritual of music and laughter.
I will know that ritual again.
