The Fifty-third Gate

Feeling as an abode of mindfulness is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we detach from all miscellaneous feelings.

Feeling:
the general state of consciousness considered independently of particular sensations, thoughts, etc

Awareness of feelings,
Where they come from and
Why they are there,
Empowers my ability
To see feelings with objectivity.

And writing a sentence
As though it were a verse
Does not
Make it a poem. [morehappy]

Forget this and that
Focus on
Feeling, not the felt

Spot on my friend! [claps]

And regarding your second point, it all depends on who you ask. Your reflection works as verse to me. ;-)
