Modern Meditations

by Joanna

Every moment begins anew
The opportunity to forgive
We only have this moment
This life
‘No day but today…’
The chorus goes
Here, locked into the present
I see many things I have not seen before
Views shift
When we stop filling eyes and minds and hearts
With all that has come to and shall pass
We move like spiders now
Four limbs doubled
As the essence of who we are
Settles into the presence of who we have become
A new link to ourselves is provided
Found simply within the inhale and exhale
A hand motions stop
Breath is the stabilizing factor here
Observing with third eye intact
Imagine it so
View it unfolding
Rippling through the cosmos
One beat after the next
Watch it flow
As streams and strings connect ever further
Within and without
