Zen

I am working full-time for the summer to refill my coffers so that I can have time in the fall again to work on my poetry and business of poetry.  There is no way to avoid needing money. A little Zen is always a good idea when shifting into a different lifestyle. Enjoy the poem and the sleepy bunny photo.

Zen

Yin balanced with yang
Stand on one foot
Imagine a peaceful place
Ocean or forest
Toes in the surf
A warm cabin
Rocking chair
Singing to yourself

Pick up your worries
Strewn around like laundry
Ask those worries
If they are real
If they will pass
If they will never come to be

Toss those worries
into the wind
Replace them with
Gratefulness
with luck.

Say aloud
“I am lucky to be here
in this moment.”
“I am lucky to be me;
the only me.”
“I have control of me.”
“I have control of my thoughts.”
“I am free.”
“I am lucky.”
