This phrase is trending currently in case you were not aware.
Perhaps instead you were reading books
reviewing them, writing poetry,
listening to lyrics, writing about biscuits
but not eating them, gardening in grand style
hang gliding above San Bernadino,
having your heart broken again
or your spirit crushed over and over,
reading and counting words, programming,
working behind the scenes wherever you are
keeping this place running smoothly,
filling nodeshells, adding angels,
sharing your beliefs, your observations
or you might be waiting, somewhat disappointed
chatting, upvoting, downvoting, dreaming or
appearing now and then, a flicker
sending messages from far while here
words to words, we strangers stay connected or
you might watch a man walk down your morning street
putting strawberry scented chapstick on his dry lips
before catching his train to work in the city.
In those instances, you were clocking the house.
Pay attention, everything you do is important in the moment.
* Thanks to Serjeant's Muse for using vocabulistically which
I doubted was a real word.
