Pantoum: On Meditation

Getting back to now

Out of obsession
Back to this moment

With its whistling wind


Out of obsession
Out of the mind’s noise
With its whistling wind

All in imagining

 

Out of the mind’s noise
Back to this moment
All in imagining

Getting back to now

Getting back to now

It’s the thing to do now. No choice really. Reluctant though, and loathe to leave the open now for the must-do.

My spirit journeyed into the nurturing earth, the comfort and sustenance therein. A soft, constant foundation laid upon bedrock – solid, secure, always.

Again it journeyed up through the stars to the vast immenseness of possibilities and my being expands with the knowing.

So please, I am not ready to get back. Really, this is all I desire for this time of this chaos. Getting back does not beckon ~ it makes me flinch.

En garde, rise to the challenge, carpe diem – forward ho! How exhausting…

But perhaps by focusing on the spirit’s renewal, the now can be dealt with and conquered. Weakness and dodging appeal no more than battle. So I shall simply move forward into the now of my choosing. My choice, my possibilities. I can do that now… moving steadily beyond the whistling winds of the now.
