The only, a haiku

Here’s this week’s haiku to set the mood. It took me more than an hour to come up the first two lines, but they flow really nicely.

I maneuvered through Monday morning with this thought: I really am only here, so I will be mentally present where I am, because that’s all there is.

I am very imaginative and have a tendency to be in my head, picturing myself everywhere else but where I am.

It sounds dreamy (and it literally is!), but it actually hurts me when I don’t have an anchor — something to remind me that out of all the imagined scenarios and places I can see myself in, my life is right here, right now in Boston.

This haiku is for the dreamers out there like myself.
