Zen

Bliss

Mind floats downstream

Void of thought or worry

Detached, yet acutely aware

Body, prone and uncoiled

Surrenders to gravity

Melting into itself

Light as air

Heavy as lead

Random debris

Floating in the periphery

Becomes conscious thought

Alive, vibrant and textured

Is fondled, savored, consumed

Then jettisoned

Body centered

Limbs extended

Palms flat

Floating in the stillness

The music of breathing

The one audible sound

Inhale…..exhale

Inhale…..exhale

Inhale…..exhale

Perfect stillness

Stark simplicity

No anxieties

No sadness

An empty vessel

Fortifies itself

For the new dawn

  1. You took creativity to an entirely new level! I am kind of with Angela that the alphabet played a small part in this new form of creative! I loved it though! You are extremely talented with or without the new letters of the alphabet you are learning to appreciate!!
