Ode to meditation

I’m learning how to meditate using a game called PLAYNE – a really amazing resource for me, because it uses metaphors my brain can wrap itself around. Plus, there’s a fox named Wolf. It’s wonderful.

This was my post-meditation quote last night, and I found myself dribbling words onto the page the way I used to, a decade of summers ago.

here is my stillness
it never came with the
prayer,
praise,
private practice.

here, brought in by the fox,
kept willing captive by the voice,
I hear the music,
and in the music,
the quiet.

the fire, a reason to return;
the story, reaching me through
metaphor,
quote,
previous life.

here, I feel understood:
you and me,
the distance,
the closeness,
the past,
the future,
the present, most of all.
