Meditation

On my day off, there is
the gym
afternoon mass
a walk with a friend.
But what about sitting still
in my chair by the window,
letting every truck that comes by
and rattles the floor
be,
along with the sound of heat pumping from the radiator?
In the other room, the clock on the wall ticks. Each stroke like a wine glass shattering against the wall.
The ice-maker in the fridge talks to me.
All beautiful
and terrifying.

    Alone in a room just the invisible hum in the air can be dramatic. Good stuff. Congrats on the selection. daver

    Early morning reading to get the mind buzzing. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry Don. Have a fabulous weekend and I hope to see more of your poetry when I get back to the Soup Monday. Usually pretty busy on the weekends with family so don't get to read much. Love, Carol

    Very effective...being alone can be both rewarding and frightening...and everyday objects and sounds can certainly emphasize isolation and serenity. Well drawn piece.
