Subtle Excitement

Rearranging molecules
Projecting energy in a new direction
Sending ripples out into the pond
Shooting thoughts through the air

Just a little bit of movement
Can have far-reaching effects
The results may not yet be known
But something can be quickly felt

Unexplained excitement
Coming out of the blue
You find yourself smiling
And you don’t know why

Like antennae in the wind
Your arm hairs stand up
You take a deep breath
Expecting to catch a scent

Emptying your mind of thoughts
You enter a state of receivership
You know something is coming
But it is not here yet
