MINDFULNESS

 

 

Quieting

My thoughts

 

I observe

An abundant river.

 

The past

And future

 

Are persistent myths

Sinking in sand

 

While I eclipse

God of the orchard

 

Where peace and justice

Sing like birds.

 

My soul is a map

Hiding beneath mind.

 

Mind is a

Storm simulation

 

Of thick clouds

Emptying

 

On the tongues

Of angels

 

Whispering

Deepening green,

 

All,

In a single gaze.
