meditation [a poem]
What do you do when you don’t know what’s next,
when you wanna think simple but your mind is complex.
You read and you write, and spend time alone,
you sit in the garden and turn off your phone.
You go for for a walk and admire the trees,
you sit on the beach and soak in the seas.
You sit real still and breathe real deep,
and notice the thoughts that linger and creep.
Thank them for coming and honor their place,
then ask them to leave so your mind has more space.
And not for more thoughts, but actually for nothing,
the goal of this process is to silence the mind’s buzzing.
What happens next when your thoughts disappear,
is that reality suddenly seems much more clear.
