The Thinking Poet

 

Meditation

Be still, my mind.

Float upon calm waters like a lily-pad, scarcely moving,

Neither resisting nor avoiding.

 

Be tranquil.

Pose no questions, seek no answers.

Between the unfelt, inhaled breath is what you seek.

 

Rest on cradling seas.

In gaps between gathering clouds of time

Let lasting moments shine.
