Feeling Hungry


Starting to feel hungry
A subtle feeling
tugging at my attention
Half in my stomach ... half in my head.

Early stage hunger
brings with it
a clear, focused feeling
reminding me ...
I want to eat.

Wait too long
the clear, focused feeling
of gentle hunger
begins to gnaw;
my focus narrows
anxiousness awakens
wanting to eat becomes ...
needing to eat.

early stage hunger
are companions ...
on the ‘razor’s edge’
the balance point
where care-free

Eat small portions
when hunger
to gently call
for my attention.

My body becomes lighter;
My mind remains clear;
Digestion vigorous.
