Birdsong ends night’s quiet
sun sets aside night’s mantle
no past, no future!
Day to remember
the ultimate sacrifice
the price of freedom!
Sleep so hard to shake
yawning, stretching, rubbing eyes
the day will not wait!
Finally at home
a day of conversation
and work is over!
Starting the day there are myriad possibilities.
Intrusive distractions observed dispassionately pass away.
I refuse to act on them. Selah!
Awaken to a dream – Need to sit in stillness.
In doing nothing, I become – no past, no future.
The dream conceals the diamond that is eternal
