Presence (6b)

PRESENCE

Hands on knees
Crosslegged, spine straight
Breath even
Mind at rest
Momentary glimpse of love
Monkonditional

Still … For Now: Four By Six

STILL … FOR NOW

The vodka is still bubbling
With a stir from time to time
Gradual fermentation
Then one day soon … Fireworks!

Ending (Republished)

ENDING

All passages of thought
Are unnecessary
So if you ever get bored
With changing
Your mind …

If you stop
You don’t have to start again …
Acres of space
Bumper to bumper
Nothingness
Together
Everywhere

No matter
Never mind
Never matter
No mind

Departure Lounge

DEPARTURE LOUNGE

Motion suspended
Awaiting call to action
Anticipation
Flickering candles of thought
Like tiny sparks in the night

Fly Fishing

FLY FISHING

Hooked into a thought
One thing leads to another
Wake up, remember
Wriggle free and with a “Splash!”
Drop into the stream again

Oh Media Mania’s Puny Hum

OH MEDIA MANIA’S PUNY HUM

Illusion within
Illusion masquerading
As reality
I interrupt this broadcast
With breaking news of silence

Breath III

BREATH III

You are here at last
Welcome to the now moment
Don’t try to hang on

Clair De Lune

CLAIR DE LUNE

Silence … unhurried
Silences within silence
The moon … listening
…..
…..

Dread Affliction

DREAD AFFLICTION

Overthinking
One terrible affliction
Thinking gets enmeshed
Goes blind lost in emotion
Pure intuition cut adrift
Time to let go

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

Sit still as silence
Thirty minutes and reboot
Duly calm readdress the issue
If caterwauling chitcat reinvades
Stop – take ten deep breaths
Ten – one after the other

Give yourself a hug or two
Tap your baton a time or two
For you are conductor here
Call the players to order
And issue your order
Da capo – Da capo

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

And et cetera

Patience

PATIENCE

May your ripples
Subside

As time
Goes by
